A NEW DAWN 



Registration went very smooth- 
ly this semester, according to 
those unfortunate souls whose lot 
it was to guide the masses through 
the bureaucratic maze especially 
designed for the occasion. Even 
the president was heard to re- 
mark that things were very 
quiet, perhaps too quiet. .And 
indeed they were quiet, the faci- 
lities used were, for the first 
tune, adequate to handle the job 
of processing students while 
allowing some room for relatively 
unhindered movement. It M 
certainly a far cry from some of 
the past on period 
and a quite pleasing chan>:

Bossier City branch of Southern 
University is experiencing a 
similar boom. The reason is 
quite sijnple: the almighty 
dollar. It costs at least 
$650.00 to attend Centenary full 
time for one semester, whereas 
a student might find virtuallly 
the same courses at a public 
university for less than $100.00. 
Given the current economic con- 
ditions . it is not in the least 
surprising to find potential Cen- 
tenary students being lured else- 
where. 

In addition to the problem of 
too few students, money from other 
sources becomes increasingly dif- 
ficult to find in times of eco- 
nomic depression. Regular con- 
tributors, upon whom any private 
college depends heavily for its 
existence, either reduce or 

mate their donations, leav- 
ing the schools with the un- 
hapr pect of having to fall 
on their endowment in 
ier to meet operating ex- 
penses. This is pure poison 
to an administrator, for simple 
mathematics will show that en-

has replaced the Rt 
August E. Aamodt as dean 
students . There was some 



satisfaction concerning the for- 
mer Dean Aamodt' s performance 
as dean of students expressed 
in the spring of last year, 
stemming primarily from the 
allegations that he was not 
responsive to the needs and 
wishes of the students , as a 
person in his position must 
be if an effective relation- 
ship is to exist. 
Dean Miller is a young man 
at 29 and has expressed a de- 
sire to form a good working 
relationship with the student 
body. He has emphasised that 
the problems inherent in the 
job of dean of students on 
any college campus today are 
those which arise from the 
broad range of positions which 
a dean must fill. The dual 
role of disciplinarian and 
counselor makes the job an 
extremely difficult dne. 

Finally, rather drastic changes

Miller Takes Over; 

Seeks Communication 



Pulitzer Winner Has 

Column In Journal 



George E. Miller, Centenary's 
new dean of students, has a 
three -pronged plan for his of- 
fice, centering mainly on 
student needs . 

His first area of concern is 
the incompatibility of the coun- 
seling and disciplinary roles 
of his office. He would like to 
have "students talk with me 
without fear of Big Brother." 
,He stated that he is trying to 
re-assign discipline as much as 
possible to be better able to 
concentrate on his second point, 
determination of student needs . 

'My position is Dean of Students. 
My feeling is that I should 
cater to student wants and needs,' 
he said, "although not for- 
getting faculty and staff." 

Dean Miller has devised an 
access route to Centenary's 
version of the silent majority. 
Randomly selected members of the 
college community will find 
letters of invitation in their 
mailboxes sometime within the 
next few weeks to come at their 
convenience and talk with him. 

When all the preliminaries 
are completed, the new dean 
hopes to settle down to the 
task of 'meeting the needs, 
checking out gaps and over- 
laps. If possible, choosing 
alternatives to existing pro- 
grams." 

Discussing campus life, Dean 
Miller put out a few thoughts, 
seen through the perspective of 
a man who has been on the Cen- 
tenary campus for all of a 
month . 



Aamodt In Texas; 
Minister To Youth 



Dean August E. Aamodt has ac- 
cepted a position as minister 
to youth at the Polk Street 
United Methodist Church of Ama- 
rillo, Texas. His resignation 
from Centenary Colleee as dean 
of students is effective August 

His appointment to the new 
position in Texas has been 
made by Bishop Alsie Carleton, 
bishop of the Northwest Tex- 
as Conference of the United 
Methodist Church. 

He will be responsible for 
developing youth programs 
for junior high, senior high, and 
college students in a posi- 
tion similar to the one he 
held at the First Methodist 
Church here prior to going to 
Centenary College. 

plans to continue his work- 
camp program to foreign coun- 
tries at the Amarillo church. 



Alcohol on campus , he feels , 
is having rough going because the 
College is church related and 
has a liberal arts tradition. 
While not personally seeing 
justification for liquor on 
campus, he said that he would 
like to see a plan worked up 
to be better equipped to judge 
its merits . 

On no hours for women and a 
co-ed dorm, the dean replied he 
would first like to see it in 
action . 

Dean Miller then stated he 
feels that the term "in loco 
parentis" refers to parental 
discipline and advice. This, 
in a college setting, "is hard 
to combine. We have a great 
potential to separate these 
at Centenary, and should do 
so." 

The interview ended with a 
promise never to carry a cane, 
and an open invitation for all 
students to see him at any time.

Bennett Signs On 

With Psych Dept. 



Dr. LaVerne Bennett, who 
recently received her doc- 
torate, is the newest member 
of the psychology department. 

This is the first teaching 
position she has held since she 
received her doctorate in July 
from Northwestern State Uni- 
versity of Louisiana. She 
received her BA from North 
Texas State University and 
her MA from Hardin-Simmons 
University. 

Before comin g to Centenary she 
served as a graduate assistant 
at Northwestern State Uni- 
versity. In addition to 
teaching in elementary 
schools in Oklahoma and Texas, 
she has done research with 
the Stanford Research In- 
stitute. 



A new column appearing on the 
editorial page of the Shreveport 
Journal is authored by a fomier 
Shreveporter , Paul Greenberg, who 
served as the editor of the Cen- 
tenary College Conglomerate during 
his college years and went on to 
win the Pulitzer Prize for Jour- 
nalism in 1969 for a series of 
editorials in the Pine Bluff, 
Arkansas Commercial. 

Greenberg is the son of Mr. 
and Mrs. Ben Greenberg, 544 For- 
rest Street, Shreveport, and is 
a graduate of Byrd High School. 
He attended Centenary College for 
two years, 1954-56 and was edi- 
tor of the college newspaper as 
a sophomore in the 1955-56 aca- 
demic year. 

Transferring to the Univer- 
sity of Missouri School of Jour- 
nalism, Greenberg received his 
B. A. degree in journalism and 
M. A. degree in history. 

After a tour of duty in the 
Army, he was a lecturer in his- 
tory at Hunter College in New 
York and an interviewer for the 
Columbia University Oral History 
Society. He was first employed 
by the Pine Bluff Commercial in 
1962 and has been with the paper 
since that time except for brief 
absences when he served as his- 
tory editor for the Crowell- 
Collier Publishing Company and 
editorial writer for the Chi- 
cago Daily News. 

The coveted Pulitzer Prize 
was awarded to Greenberg in 1969 
on the basis of two editorials 
written in 1967. At the time, 
the judges commented, "Paul 
Greenberg 's editorials in the 
Pine Bluff Commercial are hard 
hitting, pithy pieces that sim- 
ply scream for action by the 
citizenry." 

His column is now syndicated 
by the Universal Press Syndicate 
of New York City and is carried 
in newspapers across the nation. 

A story in the Pine Bluff 
commercial referring to Green- 
berg's winning the Pulitzer 
Prize said of his writing, "a 
robust, hardhitting style that 
he says has grown out of his ad- 
miration for the type of edi- 
torials that regularly appeared 
in newspapers about 100 years 



Curbelo Chosen For "Personality" 



Dr. Antonio Curbelo, assis- 
tant professor of Spanish at 
Centenary, has been listed in 
the 1971 edition of Personali - 
ties of the South , a volume of 
the biographies of distinguished 
southerners whose past achieve- 
ments are worthy of note. 

Over three thousand names are 
included in the 1971 list, 
including Governor John 
McKeithen, and other govern-

and business leaders . 

Dr. Curbelo, a native of Cuba, 
came to America in 1963 after 
being released from a prison 
camp following his partici- 
pation in the ill-fated Ba/ 
of Pigs invasion. 

He holds the B. A. degree 
from Cienfuegos State Col- 
lege, Cuba; a B. A. degree from 
the Candler College of Busi- 
ness in Havana; an education 
degree from the University of 
Havana; and the M. A. degTee

lie has been at Centenary since 
1966 and also serves as a 
Spanish teacher at St. Vin- 
cent's Academy in Shreveport. 
He became an American citi- 
zen in 1969. 

He is a member of the Ameri- 
can Association of University 
Professors, the American Asso- 
ciation of Teachers of Spanish 
and Portugese, the South Cen- 
tral Modem Language Associa- 
tion, and the Louisiana

ago." Greenberg says he actu- 
ally cares how the issues he 
writes about turn out. 

In 1969, after winning the 
Pulitzer Prize, Greenberg re- 
turned to Centenary to sp-ak to 
the students in a lecture series 
and told them, 'The highest ser- 
vice we can render the reader 
is to tell him the truth. Not 
just the denatured, clipped, and 
coiffured recitation of careful- 
ly selected facts, but the truth 
one knows and feels. Without 
that kind of truth, the facts 
are only a trap for the unwary." 

Greenberg is married to the 
former Carolyn Levy of Waco, Tex- 
as and they have two children, 
Daniel, 5, and Ruth Elizabeth, 
8 months. 



Springer 

On Leave 



Mr. Dan Springer, Director of 
Development at Centenary, since 
1968, is on a leave of absence 
from the College. 

For the next year he will 
act as educational consultant 
with Howard Brarer and Asso- 
ciates of East Moline, Illinois. 
He will be working at Carthage 
College and will live in Keno- 
sha, Wisconsin.

they will only be if the ad- 
ministration, faculty and stu- 
dent body can bring them- 
selves to acknowledge that 
times have changed and that the 
old remedies are not neces- 
sarily going to work. What will 
be required is a great deal of 
innovative reforms which will 
streamline the college organi- 
zation to make it run more 
smoothly and, equally as im- 
portnat, more economically. 
This will mean that the ad- 
ministrators will have to de- 
vote all their attention 
to the problem of running a 
business, for that is what a 
college is; the faculty will 
have to direct their atten- 
tion to teaching and the 
students will have to pay at- 
tention to the task of 
learning. An attempt by 
any one of these groups 
to act in any role other than 
their own results in unneces- 
sary delays and often accom- 
plishes little. A system such 
as this would require that 
each party, administrator, facul- 
ty and student remain sensi- 
tive to the needs and de- 
sires of others and that every 
effort towards cooperation be 
made. 

The 1971-1972 school year can 
be either the beginning of a 
new era at Centenary or it 
could mark the beginning of 
the last act. The result de- 
pends on how those involved 
treat the situation of a mod- 
ern private liberal arts col- 
lege; if they are not afraid 
to change, then Centenary 
could be an exciting place 
to be; if, on the other hand, 
they choose to assume a 
seemingly safe ostrich-like 
attitude of expecting the 
troubles to disappear, thi 
there is little hope.

STAN Centrex Installed 

Private Phones Available 



Berton In Europe 



One of the newest innovations 
awaiting Centenary students 
this fall was the Centrex 
telephone system. 

Following the installation 
of the system during the sum- 
mer, a student may now place 
and receive calls in his own 
room. 

Centrex, developed bv Ameri- 
can Telegraph and Telephone, 
is a sophisticated telephone 
system in which each exten- 
sion user has his own telephone 
with a seven digit number. With 
Centrex, the need for going 
through a switchboard operator 
is virtually eliminated. The 
switchboard operator now serves 
primarily in directory assis- 
tance. 

.'■Irs. Bonnie Bray, a switch- 
board operator at Centenary for 
almost 24 years, has noted that 
this is the easiest switch- 
board system she has ever used. 
Maurie Wayne, Director of Public 
Information, has also commented 



that the system is an improve- 
ment over the older switchboard 
form. Because the caller does 
not have to go through the 
switchboard, the telephone 
service is quicker. Further- 
more, calls can now be made 
from students ' rooms , thus 
eliminating the necessity for 
a telephone in each hall. 

Each student is charged $20 
per semester for his room 
phone. Because no toll calls 
can be charged to the seven 
digit number, each student has 
received a STAN number, a 
10-digit special billing num- 
ber. All toll calls are charged 
to this student identification 
number and the student receives 
a monthly bill of his charges 
from South Central Bell. 

Campus calls can be made by 
dialing the last four digits 
of the number to be called. 
To make local calls, the caller 
must dial nine and then the 
telephone number. 



Dr. John L. Berton, chairman 
of the department of business 
and economics at Centenary Col- 
lege, has been granted a four- 
month leave of absence to conduct 
a series of business courses for 
the United States Air Force at two 
air bases in Germany. 

Dr. Berton will return to 
Shreveport in time to resume his 
duties at Centenary for the second 
semester starting in January. 

He was asked to teach the cour- 
ses in Germany by the University 
of Arkansas . His plans were to 
teach two courses, "economic growth 
and development" and "advanced mar- 
keting problems and policies" be- 
ginning at Hahn Air Force Base Au- 
gust 30 and running through Oc- 
tober 22 and at Ramstein Air Force 
Base from November 1- December 24. 

The University of Arkansas 
extended its graduate offerings 
to include the M. S. program at 
selected European bases just this 
year and asked Dr. Berton to par- 
ticipate in the program. He re- 
ceived his Ph. D. degree from the 
University of Arkansas and taught 
there for four years before joining 
the Centenary faculty in 1967. 



Senate Seats Committee Members 



In order for the Senate commit- 
tees to operate more efficiently, 
a number of changes have been 
made in their structure. The 
most important of these changes 
is the new distinction between 
executive and legislative com- 
mittees. The executive commit- 
tees will administer those 
programs which the Senate now 
sponsors. There will be five 

e committees, each with 
subcommittees as needed. The 

.lative committees shall be 
under the direct supervision 
the Senate and aid in its legis- 

by investigation 
and recommendation in their re- 
is of interest. The 
committees will 
remain the same. Appointments 
these will be made by the 

:>t of the College, with 
trmendations from the Execu- 
tive Council of the Senate. A 
rough outline of these and the 
other committees follows. 

riease sign this sheet, listing 
the order of your preference as 
to which committees you would 
like to serve on. If you have a 
preference as to which subcom- 
mittee you would like, please 
indicate this as well. If we 
are to have a strong Student 
Body, we must have participation 
in these functions of the Stu- 
dent Government. We urge you to 
become involved in a committee, 
to take an active part in the 
student government of this school

An Open Epistle 



Before the intramural pro- 
gram begins this year, I would 
like to examine one aspect of the 
program which deserves considera- 
tion. Last year a growing num- 
ber of participants became' more 
concerned with the officiating 
than with the playing of the 
games. Others still contend that 
intramurals are played for fun 
and that the officiating does 
not matter. However, I feel 
that the intramural program 
can only be as strong as its 
leaders, including the offi- 
cials. I do not know that poor 
officiating has altered the out- 
come of any games, but I do 
know that it has weakened the 
intramural program. It's no 
fun to play if you don't play 
by the rules. 



In light of this problem, 
I suggest two qualifications 
which all officials should 
meet--compentency and impar- 
tiality. One or both of these 
qualifications has been lacking 
in the past. I realize that 
finding people with these 
qualitications is not easy; 
however, with a little more 
effort and care, I feel it 
can be done. For the intra- 
mural program to be most suc- 
cessful, these values cannot 
be sacrificed. If these 
values are kept , the intra- 
mural participants will be 
able to focus their attention 
back on the playing of the 
games rather than on the 
officiating. 



Centenary Still Indepent 

After Conference Meeting 



The formation of a new 
athletic conference was the 
subject of a meeting held in 
June attended by Centenary Col- 
lege officials. Also attending 
were representatives from Har- 
din-Simmons University, Hous- 
ton Baptist College, PanAmeri- 
can University, Loyola Uni- 
versity, and Samford Univer- 
sity of Alabama. The results 
of the meeting were not con- 
clusive. The three Texas 
schools were most interested 
in the formation of the con- 
ference which would play bas- 
ketball in the NCAA univer- 



Intramurals 



The Men's and Women's In- 
tramural programs will again 
offer Centenary students a 
full program of athletic 
activities. Val Tucker, chair- 
man of the Health and Physical 
Lducation Department, will 
be the advisor to the Men's 
Intramural Council which is or- 
ganizing and planning the fall 

r.im this week. Miss 
Sharon Settlemire, a newcomer 
to Centenary, will advise the 
Women's Recreation Association, 
which is headed by Lanei 
Hart :cs of both 
these groups wi 1 1 be announced 
and by the CONGLOM" 
■II.. 



sity division and the spring 
sports in the college divi- 
sion. These three have formed 
an alliance around which to 
form a new conference and have 
retained Larry Ensminger, as- 
sistant commissioner of the 
Missouri Valley Conference, as 
an advisor. Since the meeting 
Samford has withdrawn its in- 
terest because of the geo- 
graphical infeasibility, and 
Oklahoma City University has 
been approached. Centenary 
Athletic Director Orvis 
Sigler has described Centenary's 
position at the present to 
be "in limbo." 

Coach Sigler has attended 
similar meetings for a number 
of years and considers con- 
ference membership important 
to Centenary athletics, but 
he adds, "We feel we need a 
conference, but not any con- 
ference. The right conference 
would be a tremendous asset."

CONGLOMERATE 



September 10, 1971 



Entertainment? Where? 

Centenary's noble Student Senate faces the task of inspiring 
its constituents this year. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to 
achieving a good return of beginning students (and recruiting new 
students) is the lack of a satisfying social life. There is lit- 
tle to do after class and studies are over, and each year a sig- 
nificant portion of students find Greek organization aversions, 
less inviting. The Shreveport area offers such mind-polluting al- 
ternatives as the Bossier Strip and various King's Highway in- 
telligence supressants. There are a few places to take in semi- 
recent movies and a few places to eat. However, when Centenary 
students (who are fortunate enough to have grown hair) enter 
places frequented by Shreveporters , they often receive a cool, 
if not hostile reception. It seems that the "Paul Harvey for 
lunch bunch" doesn't like to have their places invaded by folk 
different from them. 

Where to go? What to do? Perhaps the Senate can do some 
research on the entertainment possibilities both off campus and 
on. If the research is productive, the Conglomerate will' an- 
nounce the entertainment possibilities of interest weekly along 
with the movie schedule . 

D.W. 



The campus newspaper should function as a market place for the 
free exchange of ideas. With this in mind, the Conglomerate wel- 
comes comments from its readers. 

'Weekly Mail" will feature letters from students, faculty, staff 
and others who wish to express themselves concerning campus affairs. 

"Speakers Corner" will feature contributions in the form of 
editorials, giving the writer an opportunity to express himself 
at greater length and with more organization than a letter would 

permit . 

In addition, the Conglomerate will feature articles of a more 
specialized nature. Written by student leaders or other competent 
persons in order to inform the readers of particular campus, local, 
national or international affairs. 

Contributions should be typed and accompanied by the author's 
name, telephone number, address and, if he is a student, his 
classification. 

Those contributors who wish to remain anonymous may request that 
his name be withheld in publication. No consideration will be 
given to unsigned contributions. 

Letters should be no longer than 300 words. They may be 
brought to Room 205, Student Union Building or mailed to: Editor, 
he Conglomerate, Centenary College, Box 113, Shreveport, La. 
71104. 



Senate Adopts Procedural Rules 



The Student Senate formal- 
ly opened Tuesday night with se- 
nior Barry Fulton as presiding of- 
ficer. Motions brought up before 
the Senate included Senate ab- 
sences, schedule changes for meet- 
ings and Forums speakers . 

The Senators voted to allow 
each representative three ab- 
sences per semester; on the 
fourth absence, the representa- 
tive would be dropped from the 
Senate. The motion resulted 
from extensive absences last 
year. It was pointed out that 
because of the lack of a nec- 
essary quorum to vote, time 
and effort were wasted at 
several meetings. 

Also amended was the time of 
scheduled Senate meetings. It 
was decided that all future 
meetings will be held at 5:15 
p. m. on Wednesday in the 
Green Room of the cafeteria. 



Any Centenary student may attend 
the weekly meeting. 

Cherry Payne, a sopho- 
more senator, next moved that 
$1500.00 be allotted to schedule 
Pierre Salinger as a speaker for 
the Forums program. After 
lengthy discussion and re- 
viewing of the financial status 
of the Forums program, the Senate 
passed the motion. Salinger 
is tentatively scheduled to 
appear at Centenary November 
28. 

Dean George E. Miller, the 
new dean of students, spoke 
briefly to the Senate, encour- 
aging them and the student body 
to come to see him so that he 
can leam the students ' ideas 
and needs, and hear their 
opinions. 

President Paul Heffington 
announced that the election for 
freshman senators will be held 
on October 11 .

Weekly Mail 



To The Editor: 

The cafeteria situation at 
Centenary is becoming extremely 
bad. Lunch lines stretch from 
the front doors to the extreme 
right hand corner near the Cen- 
tenary room. Suggestions have 
been made , such as , the students 
spacing themselves out between 
12:00 and 1:30 p. m. I feel that 
spacing alone is not the answer. 
There is no reason why students 
should have to wait in line 30 
to 40 minutes in order to be 
served a meal. 

The answer to this dilemma 
is obvious . Centenary College 
is in dire need of a two-cafe- 
teria serving system. A second 
cafeteria would alleviate the 
problems of long lines at lunch 
and would also allow those stu- 
dents with M-4 and M-6 classes 
more time to digest (or even 
eat!) their meal. 

It has been mentioned before 
that Catering Management is a 
corporation and its business is 
to make money. But is it right 
for a group of people to be 
exploited for the sake of the 
almighty dollar? I feel that 
both of the cafeterias could be 
opened without that much loss of 
revenue by the catering service. 
Although the food has an aura 
of being better prepared this 
semester, why must efficient 
service be sacrificed? The in- 
flux of more dorm students shows 
the need for the opening of the 
front cafeteria, if only for 
lunch. Golden albatrosses come 
in many shapes and sizes . 

Thomas H. Musselman 



To The Editor: 

We seem to have a problem. 
We can't quite understand the 
meaning of the picture that you 
printed in the last issue, show- 
ing two boys from the waist down, 
with the word "good" under- 
neath it. Perhaps it was 
supposed to be amusing; if that 
was the case then it is we that 
have no sense of humor. Per- 
haps your printer accident ly 
chopped off half of their bo- 
dies, which seems a little un- 
likely. Perhaps, then, you 
the editors wanted a reaction. 
If this was the case, we have 
decided to provide you with 
ours. We believe the picture 
was unnecessary and in poor 
taste. The Conglomerate 
is too valuable an asset to 



the students, faculty and ad- 
ministration, we believe, to 
spend time, effort and money 
on such a picture . 

Many times before we have 
been proud of the articles in 
the Conglomerate, for the paper 
brings our attention to some 
of the many problems facing us 
at Centenary. We cannot, then, 
keep from thinking that the Con- 
glomerate could have used 
methods other than a picture of 
boys' crotches to draw our at- 
tention to the necessary new re- 
visions in the freshman ori- 
entation program

the gospel of Sport

Guest Editorial 



Tiddlywinks For Two? 



Football used to be a reality at Centenary College. The in- 
tramural program was designed to let the neglected Joe Namaths 
and Ben Davidsons of bygone high school days re-enact those glo- 
rious moments of the not -so-distant past. 

But football has changed at Centenary. It has changed from 
a game filled with power and excitement to one which appears to 
be worse than last fall's Women's Powder Puff gridiron clash. 
Football, at Centenary, has become a "no contact" sport. It now 
ranks in the league with ping-pong, pool, paddle ball and dominoes. 

The new rule changes enacted by the Intramural Council, on the 
sincere advice of Coach Val Tucker, have changed the whole struc- 
ture of a game that many people have been playing since their ele- 
mentary and junior high school years. The new rules include many 
provisions that make football "safe for democracy." There will be 
no kickoffs or kickoff returns. The ball will simply be played 
from the twenty yard line. There will be no punt returns. A punted 
ball is dead where it is caught or where it happens to stop. All 
passes intercepted by the defensive team will be dead at the point 
of interception. 

On offense, there will be no sweeping plays with more than one 
blocker. A runner is essentially "on his own" after he has crossed 
the line of scrimmage. There will be one interference blocker al- 
lowed downfield but this blocker cannot block- -that is to say, he 
cannot have any contact with a defensive player. He will be just 
an obstacle for one to go around. 

On the line, there will not be any "throwing of forearms" at the 
defensive rushers, who seem to have an outstanding advantage. A 
lineman's forearm cannot move faster than his torso; also the line- 
man's hands must remain on or close to his chest. 

These new rules will put a new and even greater stress upon a 
game already filled with tension. The position of referee will be 
an even more difficult one than in the past. It will be up to the 
referee to decide between what is "hard hitting" and just a gentle 
nudge. The referee must decide if a forearm was thrown or someone's 
body reflexes were quick enough to make it appear so. Needless to 
say, the referee's position will be an impossible one. Already con- 
fronted with the problem of teamt prejudices, a further burden of 
"value judgements" will be given to the referees. There are many 
doubts as to whether an official will be able to call a reasonably 
good game. 

I suppose that from now on basketball will be our big contact 
sport. I just hope they don't outlaw the jump shot.

The Massacre at Attica 

The incident occurred over 1500 miles from Shreveport. It 
involved no one here; the participants were unknown to us, at 
least on a personal basis , and the setting was far removed from 
anything connected with academic institutions. Well then, why 
should we give it any thought; we were not even affected. 

Like hell we weren't. 

The "incident" was, of course, the massacre of 41 persons at 
the state prison in Attica, New York, which took place this past 
Monday morning, and it may go down in history as one of the most 
tragic events of the decade. The story behind the killings is 
well known to almost everyone by this time. A group of black 
prisoners, unhappy about conditions at the prison, seized and 
held 38 prison employees, mostly guards and all white, threat- 
ening to murder them unless certain demands were met by prison 
officials. For four days, negotiations were held between the 
prisoners and the officials; at times, chances for a settlement 
seemed good, at other times, there seemed to be little chance 
at all. Suddenly, negotiations were halted and the area of the 
prison in which the hostages were being held was stormed by 
state troopers and national guard troops. The action lasted 
only a few minutes, but it was long enough for 28 prisoners 
and 9 hostages to die and many others to be wounded. Three of 
those have died since. 

Since the assault, various public officials and prison 
administrators have spoken out either in favor of the attack 
or against it. Those one would expect to back the decision 
to rush the prison have generally done so; those expected to 
denounce the action have to a great extent done exactly that. 
What both sides have chosen to ignore, at least publicly, is 
that those killed were more than simply black prisoners and 
white guards; they were human beings, and, as such, they deserved 
every chance of survival which we could humanly afford them. 
Obviously, they were given no such chance. Instead, society's 
chosen representatives resorted to the age-old trial by combat 
method of solving differences. They did this with the full 
knowledge that the majority of the men in that area would be 
killed, but the alternative would have been to stand up under 
political pressure and allow all possibilities for a peaceful 
solution be explored before calling on more violent methods. 

The most tragic aspect of the entire episode was that the 
action which was trl<en was not unexpected. The immediate reac- 
tion of too many people today, and, unfortunately, of society as 
a whole, to any show of force by any groip is a similar, or if 
possible, greater display of violence. This tendency was shown in 
a grand style by the Attica incident. So, when we talk about 
the need for sweeping prison reforms in order to avoid similar 
occurences in the future, we had better look at a hell of a lot 
more than just the penal system. A humane system of prisoner 
rehabilitation is not going to do much good when the society 
which it serves has forgotten what the term "fellow man" 
means. 

Weekly Mail 

To the Editor: 

To those who turned out 
for the Patti Miller Show-- 
Thanks.' Perhaps this show was 
the first indication of better 
things to come, in the matter 
of entertainment, for Centenary. 
At last it seems as though 
apathy on campus is dying out. 
I thank the "freaks" who 
turned out in force to provide 
some musical background and add 
some spice to the audience, 
and the "straight" socialites 
who took some time off and 
came to enjoy the show. 



It is very discouraging to 
the people who spend time, ef- 
fort and planning to organize 
concerts, movies, dances, etc. 
and have a scanty attendance. 
Sometimes due to lack of time 
attendance just isn't possible, 
but when shows are set up and 
are not all they could be be- 
cause of student apathy then 
it isn't the fault of those who 
planned it. 

See you at the next gig! 
Love and smile, 

Jose A. Cisneros

Art Department 
For Varied Prog 



Announces Plans 
ram in Library 



Each year the Centenary Art 
Department and the Centenary Li- 
brary cooperate in the arrange- 
ment and production of vari- 
ous exhibits of artistic merit 
for display in the permanent art 
gallery in the foyer of the li- 
brary. This art gallery was 
provided for in the original 
library plan as an exhibition fa- 
cility for any worthy exhibit of 
sufficient interest and value 
to both the college and the com- 
munity. Every exhibit ima- 
ginable has been shown in this 
versatile area including sculp- 
ture, photography, paintings 
and even a special travelling 
exhibit of Leonardo da Vinci's 
mechanical masterpieces. 

Mr. Willard Cooper, pro- 
fessor of Art and chairman of 
the department, remarked that the 
exhibits come from many sources. 
Travelling shows are an im- 
portant source, as are one-man 
senior art exhibits by Centenary 
students. The art fraternity at 
Centenary, Kappa Pi, sponsors 
a sales exhibition before Christ- 
mas each year, using the money 



Two Publication 
Positions Open 

Applications are now being 
accepted for the positions of 
Organizations Editor of the Yon 
cop in and News Editor of the 
Conglomerate . Both positions 
carry one -half tuition scholar- 
ships , 

Interested students may 
pick up their applications in 
room 227 of the Administration 
building or in the Conglomerate 
office. All applications must 
be turned in no later than noon 
Friday, September 24, 



, raised for art scholarship 
funds. Area artists contribute 
their talents to the constant- 
ly changing gallery, as do. some 
former Centenary students.. "Re- 
quests also play an important 
part in the choice of material," 
said Mr. Cooper. "We have re- 
ceived numerous requests from res- 
idents of this area, as well as 
some from out-of-state resi- 
dents." 

The present exhibit in the li- 
brary is that of Allen Shaffer, 
staff artist for Neiman-Marcus , 
the famous department store. 
This exhibit is primarily con- 
cerned with display techniques , 
including various media. Felt 
collages, styrofoam sculpture, 
paper art, photography, paintings 
and posters are all used. 

The present exhibit is a 
good example of what Mrs. Nancy 
Middleton, library secretary, 
describes as the variety of art 
exhibited in the gallery. "All 
different phases of art are rep- 
resented," said Mrs. Middleton. 
"Metalwork, paintings, ceramics, 
sculpture and photography are 
only a few of the fields that 
have been represented." 

The schedule for the fall 
semester of art shows has al- 
ready been planned well in ad- 
vance by a Fine Arts Committee. 
The exhibits will change every 
two to three weeks. The first 
show, Sept. 19 to Oct. 1, will 
be by Rudolfo Fernandez, an area 
musician, consisting of various 
paintings. Oct. 3 to Oct. 15 
is the time slot occupied by Mr. 
0. L. Hobson, a Second Air Force 
Historian at Barksdale Air 
Force Base. Mr. Hobson has a 
vast Oriental collection and 
will exhibit a group of Yoshida 

prints. '

Speaker's 
Corner 



As a senior at Centenary I 'm pretty proud of this school . 
I don't especially like everything about it, but I do feel 
that it has been well worth the $6000 it has cost me to come, 
have talked with other students and some faculty about what we 
as students at Centenary could do for the school. About the 
only feasible idea that everyone agreed on was a student initi- 
ated recruitment program. The idea of each student on this campus 
getting one student to come to school here is staggering. Why 
the enrollment of this school could double, or maybe (being 
realistic) break the 1000 enrollment mark for the first time in 
three years. Mr. Shultz, director of admissions, thinks the 
idea is grand, but is skeptical as to how long it will last 
and even if it will receive student support. His office will 
make available prospective students' names and catalogues and 
applications before Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations. The 
areas of inmediated involvement are: 

1. "tour guides" for visiting prospective stu- 
dents, which would entail letting this department know your 
schedule and thus when you could meet with prospective students; 

2. involvement with Junior-Senior Day, which is 
not until Spring semester; 

3. after Thanksgiving, getting names and addres- 
ses from this office and writing personal letters to prospec- 
tive students; and 

4. informing the office of prospective students, 
specifically those other than Methodist which is the main source 
of names that the department receives. 

If you care- -become involved and "EACH ONE GET ONE."

Rush Held For 
Campus Greeks 



The Interfratemity and Pan- 
hellenic Councils held formal 
rush Sept. 1 through Sept. 5. 
Various parties were held by 
the four fraternities and three 
sororities. Forty-six girls 
went through rush, 26 of whore 
pledged a sorority and 60 men 
went through rush, 2S of which 
pledged. 

Different rules were set up 
for each of the two councils. 
Rules for men rushees were as 
follows: rushees could not 
talk to actives or pledges du- 
ring the hours between 9:30 
and 7:00, and parties were to 
cease at the designated hours. 
Sorority rules were the fol- 
lowing: women were to maintain 
strict silence, rushees were 
not able to receive phone calls 
and mail, and no more than four 
rushees could be together at one 
rime. These rules were set up 
so the rushees would not be

OBSERVATION 



Shreveport's Jesus 



Approaching the 3200 block of Line 
Avenue, I couldn't help but think that the 
crest of the hill reminded me somewhat of a 
pimple on an adolescent cheek. For on 
this land feature two structures pro- 
trude-^. E. Byrd High School and The New 
Life Inn. I parked my car on a commer- 
cial lot and walked the remaining distance 
to "New Life" (which is directly across 
from the school) . Before I reached the steps , 
I encountered a cat (feline variety), that 
I swore I had seen on a Puss 'N' Boots 
commercial. This encounter put me in an 
appropriately mystic mood for the impending 
"cosmic significance" conversation to 
follow. 

As I walked up the steps I caught 
just a glimpse of a few daylight -floures- 
cent Jesus Slogan posters before I was 
greeted by three young men. Two were hip- 
looking and proceeded to introduce them- 
selves and offer a hippie handshake. 
The third (who looked suspiciously like 
a Bible salesman) invited me in and became 
the lucky source of a Conglomerate inter- 
view. 

In a methodical evangelistic way he 
offered me a cup of coffee and, as he returned 
with it, I couldn't help notice the re- 
flection of a day-glo Jesus poster in his 
eyes. We engaged in conversation amid the 
trek of Youth in the front room. Though 
I must admit that I harbor the skepticism 
of a typical 20th century cracker-barrel 
agnostic, I am still a sucker for sincerity, 
and we immediately established rapport. 

I was informed that the activity is 
sponsored by the R. F. Gates Evangelistic 
Foundation. It is non-denominational, 
has no racial barriers, and is inhabited 
predominantly by ninth to twelfth grade 
students. "New Life" has been open about 
six weeks, boasts about a hundred conversions 



Folk 



: — 




to Jesus, and is run by a minister that 
does not mention his dc]VL:nination . It 
is open from six to eleven p. m. Monday, 
Tuesday, and Thursday, then Friday and 
Saturday until twelve. It is closed 
during the day except for a 7:30 a. m. 
prayer session before school. It is 
geared toward an attempt to establish a 
pergonal relationship and foment a reli- ] 
gious experience in the youth it snares , 

A typical week -night schedule at 
The New Life In goes something like this: 1 
from 6:00 - 7:00, prayer meeting; 
7:00 - 8:00, witness class; 
8:00 - 9:00, Bible Study; 
9:00 - 10:00, Testimony. 
Reverend James Perkins officiates and) 
provides some well -chosen anecdotes about! 
people who have been saved off mescaline. 
One even came in to use the john while in] 
toxicated and was saved en route. After- 
wards , he went out to his car and pnured 
out the remainder of a case of beer to th^ 
glee of accompanying zealots . 

"Die group occasionally baptizes in 
the Red River, but usually can be found ai 
the 3218 Line Avenue address. They have 
a number of interesting pamphlets (I was 
given four) and can be reached at 865-9S3| 
for consultation on spiritual matters. 

I emerged from New Life Inn and was 
given a send-off by the two fellows who 

greeted me. They told me they were 
glad I'd dropped by and to come back some 
time. T thanked them, waved a pamphlet 
(that looked like' the kind that used to 
attempt to steer my grandpappy awav from 
honky-tonks) and lei 

To anyone who is interested in thi 
movement, I seriously suggest they pay 
a visit. Though the pamphlets are 
a little much, the dialogue is pleasant, 
and you leave awed by their sincerity.

REVIEWS 



(AFS) When I was a kid, my old man 
used to tell me about this movie. 'There 
was this great version of Dr. Jekyll and 
Mr. Hyde," he would say, "that starred Fred- 
erick March. It was made in 1932. But in 
1941 they did a re -make, a lousy re -make, 
and pulled the first film off the market. 
Now all you can see is the lousy version, 
with Spencer Tracy. But if you ever get 
a chance to see the one with March, 
don't miss it." 

It took nearly 15 years, but I've 
finally seen the original, and my old 
man was rigiit on--it's a killer! 
Frederick March is phenomenal, the special 
effects are so amazing that i don't have 
the slightest idea how they were done, and 
the sheer power of the film is over- 
whelming. It left us shaken. Filmed 
right before the Hays Office started cen- 
soring films , the sexual elements of the 
story are quite explicit --v^.ich, of 
course, was the whole point JErAs an early 
investigation of schizophrenia the film 
tends to over-simplification, but as a 
Morality, or a philosophical construct, 
it leaves nothing to be desired. 

The film is available in 16mm from 
MGM (who did the re-make, and bought the 
original from Paramount). If there's 
a film society or repertory theater near 
you, hound them unmercifully until they 
get hold of the film. You'll be amazed, 
and so will they- -this film is one of the 
lost masterpieces of the American 
cinema. 



(AFS) For those late-hour sessions 
when you want to cool things down some, 
you've probably got a few records that you've 
come to treasure for their low-key, good- 
vibes, simplicity. Recently I've come a- 
cross two albums like that. They might be 
worth investigating with an eye towards 
adding them to that stack. First off, 
there is Loudon Wainwright III: Album II 
(Atlantic SD-8291) , by the immensely talen- 
ted young man who used to attract Dylan 
to the Gaslight when he performed there, 
probably so Bob could figure out where he'd 
messed up. Lemme tell you, this guy 
writes songs like nobody else around. 

With a voice that verges on hysteria, 
he'll tell you stories that are unrivalled 
in their detailed description of a person's 
life. Like "Motel Blues," about a rock and 
roller in a motel, trying to convince a 
girl to come up to his room. Like "Be 
Careful, There's A Baby In The House," a 
song of quiet menace. 'Like the Suicide 
Trilogy, three songs ("I Know I'm Un- 
happy," Suicide Song," and "Glenville 
Reel") that'll leave you cutting your 
wrists with a smile. Or "Samson and 
the Warden," in which a busted long- 
hair pleads for his locks. I could 
go on, but let me just say that Loudon 
Wainwright III is going to burst on the 
scene very shortly as a New Genius, 
so prepare yourself now by picking up on 
his new album. 



Then there's Michael Hurley, a folkie 
from Buck's County, Pennsylvania whom 
some of us have heard rumors about for 
years. Others have seen his odd comic 
strips appearing in various underground 
newspapers, and still others have had 
the odd experience of hearing him per- 
form. With the release of Armchair 
Boogie: Michael Hurley & Pale (Warner 
Brothers WS-1915) , everybody can get 
an earload of Hurley's weird talent. 
A careful, methodical, and almost 
painfully slow guitarist and singer, 
he's aided by some of his friends, in- 
cluding Jesse Colin Young, on whose 
Raccoon label the record appears. 
The result is strange, but appealing. 
For one thing, the record was made in 
Hurley's house, and all the street noise 
and dog barkings of his daily life appear ] 
in full fidelity. For another, the appeaJ 
of songs like 'The Werewolf," "English Gei3 
tleman," and 'light Green Feller," is 
universal, and no matter how odd Hurley's I 
delivery might seem, he gets the point 
across. The standout for me, though, is 
the last cut on the album, "Penguins," 
an instrumental piece for guitar, and 
two voices imitating trumpets. It's 
a strange, moving piece, and I can't 
imagine how he did it. Yeah, this 
album's not for everybody, but it's still 
a fine one.

Book Review: Good Times /Bad Times 



I don't know what I was 
doing in 1968 when James Kirk- 
wood's Good Times/Bad Times ar- 
rived on the book market. You 
can be sure I wasn't buying hard- 
back books and reviewing them for 
the Conglomerate. However, I can 
tell you why I passed over it 
after it came out in paperback. 
The cover has a sad- looking guy 
sitting on a suitcase just be- 
low a quotation from a Cleve- 
land newspaper review that com- 
pares it to The Catcher in the 
Rye . Since about a thousand 
third rate novels have been 
compared to Salinger's prep 
school story, I wasn't exac- 
tly hot to read it. .Anyway, I 
apologize for reviewing a 1968 
book in 1971. But it wasn't 
until a few weeks ago that a 
sister of mine slid a copy ac- 
ross a coffee table, told -me 
that it was caustic and little 
brotherish, and said that she 
thought I'd like it. It was. 
I did. 

The story is about an al- 
coholic actor's son from Cali- 
fornia in a New England prep 
school, complete with a sick, 
headmaster and the best best 
friend in American Literature. 
If you don't intend to neglect a 
day of classes to read it, don't 
open the first chapter. It's 
a hooker. It starts off with 
the hero (Peter Kilburn) in 
jail. He tells the funny, sad, 
then horrifying story of life 
at the school and why he mur- 
dered the headmaster. I could

VISAGES 




Rupert Joins Music Faculty 



A 40 year old pianist who once 
studied as a Fulbnght Scholar in 
Cologne, Germany has been named as- 
sociate professor of music at the 
Centenary College School of Music, 
President John H. Allen announced 
this summer. 

He is Dr. Donald V. Rupert of 
Stevens Point, Wisconsin. He has 
been a member of the faculty at 

:onsin State University for the 
past 12 years where he taught pi- 
ano, piano literature, music his- 
tory, romantic period, Contemporary 
period, and music appreciation. 

Dr. Rupert holds three degrees 
from the Eastman School of Music; 
the B. M. degree in 19S3 (with 
tinction) major instrument, pi- 
M. degree in 1956 in 
music literature, major instru- 

piano; and the de- 

gree in 1963 in performance and 
pedagogy, major instrument, pi- 
ano. 



He studied as a Fulbright 
Scholar at the State Conserva- 
tory of Music in Cologne, Germany 
from 1960-1961 and as a private 
pupil with Guido Agosti, Aca- 
demia di Santa Cecilia, Rome, 
Italy, while on leave of absence 
from Wisconsin State. 

In addition to his teaching ex- 
perience in Wisconsin, he gave pri- 
vate piano lessons at the Hoch- 
stein School of Music, Rochester, 
New York and taught piano classes 
at the Eastman School of Music for 
three years under the provisions 
of a graduate assistantship. 

His experience abroad enabled 
him to perform as a soloist in Ber- 
lin, Cologne, and Bonn, Germany. 
In this country he has performed 
exten . including radio and 

TV appearances, m Wisconsin, at 
the Eastman School and wh 
serving in the army. 



LEE GALONKA: The actor, 
going to be a movie star (he 
says). Brought his own three- 
way mirror to school to put on 
his dresser, five hairbrushes and 
about fifty combs. Mostly 
combs his hair- -a .hair- comb- 
ing major. 

JINMY GREEk: Sad, stut- 
ters something fierce, always 
looking like he wants to please 
so badly, hoping not so much 
to be included as hoping not to 
be excluded (if that makes any 
sense) ; still wets the bed 
occasionally. (Why do most stut- 
terers wet the bed? Is it a 
package deal?) 

LOGAN TINNEY: Fifteen, but 
a senior. Photographic memory, 
brilliant at book learning, loves 
to argue about any tiling he's 
read. Or hasn't read, for that 
matter. A born debater." 

Jordon Legier, Peter's sick- 
ly best friend, is a beautiful 
fortress against the humili- 
ating insults intelligent young 
people face at the hands of 
principals, teachers, parents 
and other coercive adults. He 
faces each situation with a 
strange inner strength, wit- 
and understanding that gives 
leadership and spirit to 
friends with little of either. 
In Jordan, Kirkwood provides 
insight into the meaning of 
friendship that I have found in 
no other book. Perhaps that 
is why I had to review a 
little known 1968 novel in 
1971. D.W. 



The organizational meeting 
of Lamda Iota Tau, the honorary 
literary association, was held 
Wednesday Sept. 15 in the Smith 
Building's Fireside Room. Dr. 
Gallagher and Mr. Jones, the 
tWT faculty sponsors of the 
organization, outlined some 
possible activities of the 
organization. These included 
a trip to the Dallas Theater 
Center for a play this fall and 
two trips to Nachitoches next 
spring to see Hamlet and Rosen - 
cranz and Guildenstern Are Dead . 
Activities on campus may include 
reading and discussing con- 
temporary novels, poetry and 
stories. The possibility of 
discussing the plays at Mar- 
jorie Lyons and current movies 
was also brought up. 

The organization is open 
to all students. The next 
meeting will be Thursday, Sept. 
30 at 3:30 p. m. Poetry by 
Ferlinghetti, which will be 
mimeographed and distributed 
to the members, will be dis- 
cussed. If you are interested

Contrary to reliable sour- 
ces, most of the rule changes 
reported in last week's Guest 
Editorial were in error. The 
rules adopted by the Men's 
Intramural Council Tuesday 
are basically the same as 
last year's. However, cer- 
tain violations such as down- 
field blocking and throwing 
forearms will be more closely 
enforced. Also the games 
have been lengthened to 20

"If I could gel my hands on 

my firs! grade teacher now, 

Id break her chalk? 



It all began In the first grade. 

But don't blame your first-grade teacher. It wasn't 
her fault. It was the system she had to teach 

The old "run, Spot, run" method. 

You had to read it out loud. Word by word. And 
that's the way it was until you became a second 
grader. Where your teacher asked you to read silently. 

But you couldn't do it. 

You probably stopped reading out loud. But you 
still said every word to yourself. 

If you're an average reader, you're probably 
reading that way now. 

Which means you read only as fast as you talk. 
About 250 to 300 words a minute. 

And that's not fast enough any more. 

Not when the average student has approximately 
8 hours of required reading for every day of classes 

And since the amount of time in a day isn't about 
to increase, your reading speed will have to. 

In order to handle it all. 

The Evelyn Wood Reading Dynamics course can 
help. 

With training, you'll be able to see groups of 
words. To read between 1,000 and 3,000 words per 
minute. Depending on how difficult the material is. 

At any rate, we guarantee to at least triple your 
reading speed, or we'll refund your entire tuition. 
(98.4% of everyone who takes the course accom- 
plishes this.) 

So don't waste time thinking about whom to 
blame. Come take a free introductory speed reading 
lesson We M increase your reading speed on the spot 
It takes about an hour to find out how you can reduce 
your study time by 50% or more. 

And it ought to be worth an hour of your time.

CONGLOMERATE 



September 24, 1971 



Weekly Mail 



To the Editor: 

I wish to commend and 
support the proposal which re- 
cently appeared in the Con- 
glomerate concerning student 
involvement in our recruiting 
program. As chairman of the 
faculty Ad Hoc Budget Committee, 
I can assure you that there 
is nothing basically wrong with 
Centenary's financial situa- 
tion that an additional one to 
two hundred students would not 
cure! While I would strongly 
oppose any attempt to turn Cen- 
tenary into a large college, 
we must face the fact that 
our physical facilities and 
faculty are out of balance with 
our present student body. 

The timing of this pro- 
posal is very auspicious in 
that most prospective students 
are now actively concerned with 
making plans for next fall. We 
must immediately seek to get 
those good students who are 
qualified for admission to 
Centenary to put us on their list 
of schools to receive SAT scores, 
for instance, and to acquaint 
such prospects with what we have 
to offer. As businessmen 
have found, the very best ad- 
vertising is the "over the 



back fence" variety. Our own 
students can do more to influ- 
ence college choice than all the 
expensive pamphlets and bro- 
chures that we can print. 

As confirming evidence of 
the feasibility of this project, 
a recent news article reveals 
that a small California college 
increased its enrollment by 
over 100 students this fall as 
the direct result of such 
a campaign by its students and 
faculty last spring. 

While every tiling present- 
ly may not be perfect at Cen- 
tenary, such a campaign will 
also provide our students with 
a powerful "lever" to bring 
about changes they desire. 
This is an excellent example 
of a case where one can help 
himself by helping others, 
for Trustees, Administrators, 
and Faculty will certainly tum 
an attentive ear to any pro- 
posals made to further such a 
desirable and urgent goal. 

Many things need to be done. 
Much hard work will be required. 
But I am confident that you 
can succeed and "EACH ONE GET 
ONE."

Open Ear Telephones Kept 
Busy; Need More Workers 



Call 869-1229 and someone 
from Ctoen Ear will be waiting 
on the other end to assist 
you in any way possible. 

Open Ear is a listening, 
referral and counseling ser- 
vice acailable to people in 
the Shreveport-Bossier City 
area. Run by volunteers from 
Centenary, Louisiana State 
University, and Southern Uni- 
versity of Shreveport, Open 
Ear telephones are manned 
from 8 to 12 each evening 
Monday through Wednesday, and: 
8 to 1 each evening Thursday 
through Sunday. 

Mr. Charles Vetter, exe- 
cutive director of Open Ear, 
explained, "Open Ear is serving 
a very valuable purpose and if 
it were not for the people on 
the telephones, it wouldn't be 
a success." 

The non-professional staff 
members of Open Ear are between 
the ages of 18 and 45 and at- 
tend training sessions before 
manning the telephones. Avail- 
able to the staff are referrals, 
contacts and written informa- 
tion to aid them in handling 
the many diverse telephone 
calls received. 



Open Ear is patterned after 
various 'hot lines" and is a 
completely anonymous program 
with all interaction occurring 
over the telephones. 

Over a two month period, 
Open Ear received a total of 
2,283 phone calls, of which 
1,437 of them the volunteers 
were able to identify specifi- 
cally the problem of the cal- 
ler. 

Mr. Vetter also stated that 
Open Ear needs more people to 
aid the program and any inter- 
ested persons should contact 
him at his office, located in 
the library basement. Since 
Open Ear is now using compu- 
ters, any persons interested 
in working with the compu- 
ters should also contact Mr. 
Vetter. An application is ne- 
cessary, and training sessions 
are held before a volunteer is 
assigned to the phones. Train- 
ing sessions are to begin next 
week on Monday from 6 to 9, 
Tuesday from 7 to 10, and Wed- 
nesday from 6 to 9. 

Any donations to Open Ear 
are tax deductable and can 
be mailed to Box 247, Centen- 
ary College, Shreveport, La.

Open to all members of the 
campus is the Sunday Morning Wor- 
ship Service, held each Sunday, 
usually in Brown Memorial Chapel. 
This is non-denominational and 
ecumenically oriented. It is 
a Christian service of worship 
or celebration designed to meet 
the particular needs of a college 
campus. 

It is experimental in ap- 
proach in that various kinds 
of orders of worship are used 
as vehicles of celebration. 
Occasionally the service is 
held in Crumley Gardens. Plan- 
ning of the services is under 
the direction of the Student 
Worship Committee and Chaplain 
Robert Ed Taylor. Students 
lead various parts of the ser- 
vice including the sermon or

together a group of students who 
could translate these data into

thereby move through their own

I am personally excited about

CONGLOMERATE 



October 1, 1971 



A NICE START 



The CONGLOMERATE is pleased to note that the 1971-72 school 
year seems to hold more promise for members of the Centenary 
community than previous years . Not only have students presented 
proposals by which people can become involved in worthwhile pro- 
jects, but a member of the administration, often noted for it's 
non- involvement in student affairs, has presented ideas which, 
should they receive sufficient student and faculty support, could 
radically alter life at this college. 

George Miller is the administrator referred to, and we feel 
that Centenary has acquired a very unusual Dean in this man. Those 
who have come into contact with him since his arrival have all 
been impressed with his seemingly boundless enthusiasm and some- 
times amazed at the energy which he possesses. He appears to be 
genuinely interested in the life of the students at Centenary and 
willing to work to improve that life in those areas which require 
improvement. 

Miller's latest proposal, the renovation of the Student Union 
Building, seems like an extremely large undertaking, as indeed it 
is. We think, however, that given enough support by the student 
body, in time, effort and especially ideas, that the project is 
within reason and should be attempted. We hope that the majority 
of those at Centenary will give the affair their backing and will 
contribute whatever talents they might possess to the cause. The 
CONGIAMERATE invites anyone with ideas about this , or any other 
project to submit them so that they can be made public where they 
will hopefully benefit the college community. 

It would also seem appropriate at this time to commend those 
students who have already demonstrated a concern for the well- 
being of the college. Important proposals dealing with student 
recruiting and alleviation of the over-crowding in the cafeteria 
have been received, and in the case of the cafeteria problem, 
acted upon. Such interest is not only desirable, but necessary 
if this institution is to survive. 

This year has started in a spirit of self-help which, es- 
pecially in these times of economic difficulties, is important 
in all fields . We hope that this spirit will remain through- 
out the year; we urge Dean Miller to continue in his efforts to 
improve the college and we especially urge the students and facul- 
ty to give their support to both his and other projects designed 
to make this a better place in which to live.

To the Editor: 

Our generation is supposed- 
ly conscious of the environment. 
Many students on this campus enjoy 
going outside to sit in the grass 
under a tree. However, some 
people don't seem to care about 
others. All across this campus 
paper and cans have been littered. 

PLEASE throw your trash in 
a can. 

Note. Week after week the 
wind blows the trash out of the 
cans behind the gym. Will the 
college do its part and pick up 
this trash? Furthermore, will 
it see to it that this trash 
is not allowed to overflow 
every week?

that the Centenary Dames 
might be interested in fund-

The Senate will attend a 
special workshop with the Dean 
on Oct. 6 to start attacking 
the details. 

At Issues § Opinions, held 
Tuesday at the break, the Dean 
spoke with nearly 80 students, 
listening to opinions on 
Library hours, campus power

Sen. Eugene McCarthy Comments 

On Young 



Editor's note: The follow- 
ing are excerpts from a speech 
delivered at a "Register for 
Peace Rally," held Sept. 24, 
1971 at the Milwaukee, Wise. 
Auditorium Arena. 

During the last four years, 
young people have been tested 
as never before in the history 
of this country. 

Their moral courage has been 
tested by the great political 

issues of this generation and 
their physical courage has been 
tested with clubs, police dogs, 
tear gas, and bullets. They 
have not been found wanting. 
There have been some failures 
and some disappointments but 
their efforts were not in vain. 

They have not copped out. 
The youth movement, as a body of 
committed persons, has not dis- 
integrated, although the form in 
which it was manifest two or 
three years ago may have dis- 
appeared. 

They helped turn the nation 
against the war in Vietnam. They 
helped lay down the challenge to 
the militarism of United States 
foreign policy. 

Much of what they first ad- 
vocated, and was called either 
naive or revolutionary, is 
now accepted as not only de- 
sirable but even conventional. 

The extension of the vote 
to 18 -year-olds is a direct 
outcome of their political in- 
volvement in 1967" and 1968. 

The movement for reform 
of political parties, especial- 
ly the Democratic party, has 
been significantly advanced be- 
cause of the concern of young 
people over political processes. 

The independence of the 
university from military and cor- 
porate influence, whereas it is 
not yet pure and absolute, is 
greater because of student pro- 
test against corporate in- 
fluence on campuses, against 
military influence in the pres- 
ence of the ROTC, and in the 
granting of money for military 
research . 

The sense of moral res- 
ponsibility on the part of 
the corporation and its stock - 
holde 



portfolios of foundations and 
universities and colleges. 

Young people's emphasis 
upon preservation of the natural 
environment and such celebra- 
tions as Earth Day have helped 
to bring the nation to a new 
awareness of the need to con- 
serve our natural resources, 
and the emphasis of youth upon 
the simplification of life, an- 
ti-consumerism and anti-materi- 
alism, an emphasis which some- 
times seems to be, and perhaps 
is, exhibitionist- -gives promise 
of bringing about a long-run 
change for the better in the Amer- 
ican view of life and of Amer- 
icals_rgle in history.

college hostess work, recruit- 
ing, orientation, and public 
relations as alternatives. 
She added that she and Rick 
Hawkins could do a major part 
of the pageant work. Awards, 
flowers, and programs would 
be the major costs. 

Paul lleffington listed the 
following topics for the cam- 
pus referendum: Liquor, coed 
dorms, admissions and enroll- 
ment, the quality of college 
life, cafeteria, SGA and its 
divisions, Centrex, Volunteer 
Service Program, I§0, 
Forums, a Louisiana heritage 
fieldtrip, curriculum changes, 
Conglomerate , and raising 
the Student Activities Fee. 
The proposed Taylor-made 
budget, which will be discussed 
at the next Senate meeting in 
two weeks, is printed else- 
where in this issue. Marked

budget are increases in the Mis-

items, and a decrease in the 
actual Conglomerate allocation

CONGLOMERATE 



October 1, 1971; 



A View From The Stage 



by Evie Lieber 

Two households, both alike in dignity, 
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, 
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, 
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 
From forth the fatal loins of these two 

foes 
A pair of star-cross 'd lovers take their 

life .... 

Within the prologue, written in sonnet 
form, is a concise description of the 
beautiful and tragic story of Romeo and 
Juliet. Audiences owe a great deal to 
Shakespeare for his works, but he did 
little to help the actors --those fated to 
portray the magnificent roles in the fa- 
mous tragedy. There are no indications made 
as to the manner in which the author 
expected the lines to be spoken, or the 
actions to be performed as the lines 
are spoken. Shakespeare wisely left the 
task of stage directing to the director. 

The story of Romeo and Juliet is quite 
simple to follow. Once can clearly see 
the same theme running through modern 
movies, such as "West Side Story." Com- 
plexity, however, is a real part of the 
production. It is found in the author's 
ability to weave his characters into a 
definite and colourful pattern. 

Of course, this is not the case 
today. Most important to us is the 
validity and reality of the emotions 
with which we, (both audience and 
actors) identify, and the pleasure 
received from the production itself. 
But these are only two of the goals 
the Theatre/Speech department has 
in presenting Romeo and Juliet. 

Juliet, (the easiest character 
for me to explain, yet the hardest for 
me to understand) , is a perfect exam- 
ple of Shakespeare's ability to in- 
terweave his characters . The only 
child of Lord and Lady Capulet, Juliet is 
the center of their attention. There 
is the nurse, to whom and from whom Juliet 
learns and shares her inner-most sec- 
rets, her confidant and companion. The 
County Paris and her cousin Tybalt 





"also draw attention and emotions from 
her. The split in Juliet's character 
comes ivith her love for Romeo. This 
love tears her own feelings apart from fam- 
ily ties, and she chooses a forbidden 
lover with an ill-fated future. 

To this sphere of characters Juliet must 
have a wide variety of emotions. Indeed, 
she runs the gamut of emotions within^ 
the text of the play. The process and ana- 
lysis by which I arrive at an emotional 
and intellectual understanding of Ju- 
liet's character is essential; but only 
half of the battle. The other problem is 
catching and holding the audience's in- 
terest in spite of the flowery and often- 
stilted interpretation of Shakespeare's 
language. 

Shakespeare left, me,- as Juliet's 
portrayer, the task of creating the moodi- 
ness needed to influence her. actions on- 
stage and off. For instance", there is a 
definite distinction between feelings for 
Lady Capulet and the Nurse, which Juliet 
must reveal during her first dialogue 
on stage; one is of obedience, another of 
playfulness, vexation, and joy. 

The innumerable possibilities in which 
scenes can be played bring different emo- 
tions, or degrees of emotion which are 
conveyed to the audience (mentally and 
physically). The most difficult scene 
for me is Juliet's soliloquy in Scene III 
of the fourth Act. The monologue is • 
readily divided into several distinct 
emotional sections. As Juliet imagines the 
consequences of drinking the Friar's 
potion she runs through fear, reluctance, 
obedience, horror, and a final break 
from reality, which she holds until she 
has drunk from the # vial. The mental 
state changes radically from quiet reflec- 
tion to unstrung pre -psychos is. 

Although I fee] that I have grasped 
Juliet's innermost feelings, each perfor- 
mance will bring a better insight into her 
character. Needless to say, I have gained 
tremendous knowledge about theatre by 
Juliet's role. If 1 car. share one-half 
of that new knowledge and experience with 
the audience, then I will have succeeded.

Forum Speaker 
dates Announced 



Former presidential 
press secretary Pierre Salin- 
ger, Indian activist Grace 
Thorpe, and New Orleans al- 
ternative culture leader Bill 
Rushton will address students 
in the fall Student Forums 
series, according to commit- 
tee chairwoman Cherry Payne. 

Bill Rushton, who will 
speak on Monday, Oct. 18, a 
graduate of the Tulane School 
of Architecture, is managing 
editor of the New Orleans 
Vieux Carre Courier . The 
topic of nis speech, "Un- 
dercoast: The Emergence of a 
New South," will allow him a 
wide range of opportunities to 
analyze the new "hip" south, the 
battle to preserve regional in- 
tegrity, and the cultural im- 
pact of leisure planning (As- 
trodome, etc.), with special 
insights on southern media and 
southern architecture. 

Celebrity Pierre Salin- 
ger, slated to speak Monday, 
Nov. 8, has just hit the best- 
seller lists with his suspense 
novel On Instructions Of My 
Government , an insider's re- 
counting of governmental in- 
trigue. Press secretary to JFK 
and to five month's worth of 
LBJ, Salinger will come to Cen- 
tenary armed with encyclopedic 
knowledge of the Kennedy years. 
This fall's series will be 
completed on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 
with the Forums appearance of 
Grace Thorpe . The youngest 
daughter ot famous athlete Jim 
Thorpe, Miss Thorpe spent three 
months on Indian-occupied Al- 
catraz lending her fund- 
raising and public relations 
expertise to the 20th century 
renegades . 

Cherry Payne asks that all 
persons interested in working 
with the committee contact her 
(5512) , or drop in on a Tuesday 
4:00 p. m. meeting in the SUB's 
Student Senate office. 




WHY, THIS MAN IS SMILING'. 



LOUISIANA: T 




EX-GOV LOVES HIS BREW 



Candidates 
To Appear 

Major gubernatorial can- 
didates, Gillis Long, John 
Schwegmann, Speedy Long and 
Bennett Johnston, plus David 
Chandler and n Puggy"Moity, 
have made commTSllfiTsto meet 
and speak with Centenary stu- 
dents during October. Negotia- 
tions with other candidates are 
still in progress, according to 
representatives of a special 
coalition of student or- 
ganizations . Only one candi- 
date, Jimnie Davis, has refused 
the students' offer. 

The organizational work is 
being handled by members of 
the Lyceums Committee, Issues 
§ Opinions, Conglomerate staff, 
and Forums Committee. In 
addition, the student Elec- 
tions Committee is considering 
a campus -wide mock election 
following the candidates' 
appearances . Due to the 
relative small size- f the 
student body, and the wide 
interest, all students at 
Centenary would be eligible 
to vote in the special mock 
balloting. 

The confirmed date for on- 
campus speakers are as follows : 
Bennett Johnston, 10:30 a. m. , 
Oct. 19; Speedy Long, 10:30 
a. m., Oct. 5; and John Schweg- 
mann, 4:00 p. m. , Oct. 11. 
Gillis Long was unable to 
schedule an on-campus appear- 
ance, but has made arrange- 
ments for interested stu- 
dents to meet .with him at 
a campaign dinner the night 
of Oct. S, with student Holly 
Hess (5352) handling the ar- 
rangements. At press time, 
Republican David Treen can- 
celled his previously con- 
firmed Oct. 14 appearance 
due to a schedule conflict, 
and promised to look for a 
date in November. 

Candidate -author David 
Chandler and Warren J. Moity 
both have confirmed their 
Oct. availability, with 
exact dates to be set later. 

Edwin Edwards and Taddy 
Aycock were still to be 
heard from as the Conglomer - 
ate went to press. 

In a phone conversation with 
Forums Committee member David 

nee, ex-Governor Jimmie 
Davis stated that he would 
not accept any college or 
university engagements be- 
cause of the rough treatment 
he received at an LSU campus.

lie Race for Governor 



Perhaps Louisiana's voters should 
the voters of South Vietnam, where 
Thieu is The One . . . and only. The 
Pelican State may share some of Vietnam's 
non-combative problems, such as corruption, 
lack of north-south expressway (unless the 
Ito Chi Mi- 1 * trail counts, in which case 
they're one up on us) , and drug abuse, 
but when one starts counting and comparing 
candidates for major office, we're miles 
ahead of the competition. 

There are twenty -one candidates 
registered to receive your vote for 
governor in the Nov. 6 primary: eighteen 
Democrats, two Republicans, and one 
American (Wallace) Party man. 

The Race Is On 

It's hard to list the "recognized 
leaders" in this contest, as most of 
the twenty-one have claimed the lead at 
one time or another. Probabilities, though, 
are that Jimmie Davis, Gillis Long, C. C. 
'Taddy" Aycock, Congressman Edwin Edwards, 
and State Senator John Schwegmann are 
somewhere up front, with J. Bennett John- 
ston and Speedy 0. Long right behind. 

Most of the candidates have one 
element in common: a public "anti- 
administration" stand. Governor McKeithen, 
who wants to save his political punch for 
a swing at U. S. Senator, is sitting this 
round out. The gubernatorial contenders 
refuse to let the Governor escape un- 
scathed from the ring, so have made his ad- 
ministration a central issue. Even Taddy 
Aycock, Lieutenant Governor under McKeithen 
and Davis, has joined the ant i -McKeithen 
throng . 

He's One Of Us? 

The most familiar face in this contest 
is that of two-time Governor Jimmie Davis , 
one of the nation's top gospel singers, 
and author of "You Are My Sunshine." 
Populist candidate Schwegmann characterizes 
Davis' campaign as "ask me no questions 
and I'll tell you no lies." Last week, in 
trouble with the press for refusing to 
answer charges of corruption, Davis sent a 
public apology to the Shreveport Journal for 
allowing his supporters to manhandle a 
reporter, submitted to a short non- 
interview with the same reporter, then 
blithely carried on with his well -planned, 
well- financed promotional campaign. States - 
Item columnist Bill Lynch a couple of weeks 
ago praised Davis' TV commercials as "the 
most effective thing going for any of the 
candidates," adding that they "obviously 
are aimed at overcoming the bad publicity 
Davis reaped as director of one of the most 
corrupt administrations in the state's 
history." The Singin' Governor, we are 
constantly reminded, has never lost an 
election. 

The Name's Familiar 

While Jimmie Davis appeals to a 
portion of Louisiana's massive conser- 
vative constituency, Gillis Long appeals 
to some of the liberals, blacks, and 
students. The more he presses forward to 
grab the minority vote, of course, the 
less his chance of maintaining the middle 
class vote necessary to win. Of the two 
men who would like to continue the Long 
tradition in the Governor's mansion, ex- 
Congressman Long is the stronger candidate. 
One major point of controversy in the 
campaign is Long's opposition to the north - 
south Toll Road, which was planned, he 
says, without considering offers of Federal 
funds for an alternative "free" road. Long 
is also afraid that a limited -access 
tollway would ruin the economy of bypassed 
rural Louisiana towns. Long is one of two 
candidates with ac tive support at Cen- 
tenary . . . contact Holly Hess. 

S peedy Long , a distant cousin who 
1 ^cRTTl 1 i s Trom Congress in 1964, is 
only contender who doesn't center his 
ks on the McKeithen administration, 
add belief that folksy 

Speedy, a McKeithen ally, wai >nto

the race to dilute the rabid anti- 
McKeithen Gillis Long vote. (Gillis, 
it's interesting to note, has the support 
of Blanche Long, the major McKeithen backer 
following Earl's death.) Speedy, a con- 
servative, dislikes insurance rates and 
property taxes, and would respectively 
lower and remove them. , He believes he 
can win with the support of the 220,000 
voters of his home Eighth Congressional 
District, added to rural sppport through- 
out the state. 

But There's More 

Since a poll published in the Baton 
Rouge Morning Advocate in July showed him 
ahead with 18$ of the total, Congressman 
Edwin Edwards of the Seventh Congressional 
District has been calling himself "the 
leader." The bulk of his backing is 
regional, as his nonstop bilingual barn- 
storming finds strong enthusiasm in the 
southern French-speaking parishes. To 
win, he must make major inroads into 
north Louisiana, which has never permitted 
the victory of a southerner. Edwards has 
lost some ground due to charges by 
Schwegmann and Gillis Long that he has 
voted in Congress only three out of 125 
possible times this year, while running 
for Governor. Last week Edwards finally 
took the action of having his name re- 
moved from the congressional payroll for 
the campaign's duration, while reminding 
his critics that he has always "paired" 
his non-votes with opposition forces. 

State Senator John Schwegmann of 
Jefferson Parish made his first statewide 
political hay attacking liquor and milk " . 
price-fixing laws (often through full- 
page ads purchased by his supermarket 
chain), and in more recent times, the 
New Orleans Superdome project. Because 
his support is not limited to south 
Louisiana, Schwegmann is rated a fair 
chance of making the runoff. 

State Senator J. Bennett Johnston 
of Shreveport is a leader ot the north - 
south Toll Road forces, but has centered 
his. recent speeches around the "strangle- 
hold" of labor leader Victor Bussie on the 
state. Johnston believes that political 
deals and racketeering influences led to 
Bussie 's recent approval list of some can- 
didates, including convicted perjurer Jack 
Gremillion, state Attorney General. Op- 
ponents contend that, though honest (he 
was floor leader for the ethics bill) , 
Johnston lacks leadership ability nec- 
cessary for the Governor's office. 

Taddy Aycock was elected Lieutenant 
Governor eleven years ago, during Jimmie 
Davis's second term, and has remained since 
(temporarily bolting the national party to 
work for Barry Goldwater) . "There is 
change in the air," he announced a few 
days ago in Shreveport, "and we in govern- 
ment have to be a part of it." It will 
take a huge public relations effort to 
make voters accept the New Aycock. 

David Treen , a New Orleans attorney ' 
who came within a few percentage points 
of defeating Congressman Hale Boggs in ' 
'68, will receive the Republican nomina- 
tion to face the Democratic choice in 
February. A strong, seasoned campaigner, 
Treen undoubtedly will garner greater 
support than any other Republican since 
Reconstruction. He's the second candidate 
with active workers at Centenary . . . 
contact the Young Republicans. 

Monkey Wrenches 

A number of other candidates in the 
race hold potential irritative powers . 
David L. Chandler is the Life writer who 
investigated the Mafia in Louisiana,, and 
has undertaken a low-budget Maileresque 
campaign. Expect to see My Life In Loui - 
siana Politics , or something similar, fol- 
lowing the election. Robert Ross of Mangham 
is the Republican who withdrew from the- 
primary according to press reports, then 
said he was misquoted, and is still in the 
running. Treen, with the party leadership 

il him, will have little trouble de- 



feating Ross unless the Republicans 
forget they have a primary. 

Sam Bell , a black candidate backed by 
the Black Louisiana Action Committee, lost 
support last week when a major organization, 
the Southern Organization for .Unified 
Leadership (SOUL), shifted to the Gillis 
Long camp. Bell took the action in stride: 
"That's the way Uncle Toms are. They made 
a deal with Gillis. They've sold black 
people down the drain .... The question 
I'd like to ask, is how a bunch of pros- 
titutes like [six SOUL members] continue 
to tell people they're black when they sell 
the white man their soul for a few pieces 
of silver." 

Self-avowed racist Rosvrell Thompson , 
who believes that Washington is a "Com- 
munist dictatorship," and will "insist 
that states* rights be recognized by the 
Washington Reds," would make interesting 
runoff opposition for Bell. Luckily it 
won't happen. Thompson runs in every 
election, usually receiving the same few 
token votes . 

Other candidates include James W .

Board) , Harold Bethune , Hall Lyons (Am- 
erican Party) , Frank T. Salter , Dr. Jim -

A CHOICE, NOT AN ECHO 



movies 

"Summer of '42" is done with such decorum 
that it is difficult to believe that it is 
a film about the first sexual encounter of 
a young boy. In the wake of "Carnal Know- 
ledge," the Capri Theatre offers a touch 
of the romantic to soothe the wounds 
opened by Jack Nicholsen's offering. Di- 
rector Robert Milligan's flick is set 
on a vacation island, and employs the ta- 
lents of three fine young actors that give 
comic support to an ordinarily weighty sub- 
ject. The actors are Gary Grimes (Her- 
mie) , Jerry Houser (Oscy) , and Oliver 
Conant (Benj ie) . The threesome romp 
around the island conversing about the 
mysteries of sex and find a fabulous 
source of information- -a sex manual. 
Their funny scholarship with the manual, 
and purchase of unmentionables at a 
drugstore help to make "Summer of '42" 
a tremendously entertaining movie. 

In her role as a young widow, Jen- 
nifer O'Neill (the object of Gary 
Grime's affection) adds a quality missing 
in many attempts at cinema beauty of 
late. Her portrayal of the sensitive 
and beautiful young woman stirs more 
inspiration during the discreet, nos- 
talgic presentation than a truckload of 
beauties of the Playboy Magazine variety, 
could in a fleshy Hollywood picture. 

The panoramic photography used by Di - 
rector Mulligan blends in the impression 
that the incidents in the movie are of both 
beauty and significance. Though a few 
scenes are a little overplayed, the 
production is well worth viewing while 
it is in Shreveport this weekend.

Trash 



by Dean Whiteside 

One crisp afternoon re- 
cently, I was approached by a 
Centenary Professor, a noted 
scholar. Though in good hu- 
mor, he was laden with heavy 
thoughts. His journey from 
Jackson Hall to the Student 
Union was subject to visions of 
clamjamfry. the oddments that 
he observed included assorted 
coke bottles, a beer bottle 
(an item traditionally foreign 
to the Centenary community) , 
and paper cups among other riff- 
raff. He attributed this tripe 
to slovenly habits of Centenary 
students and faculty and won- 
dered how to counter the in- 
elegance. He did not know who 
had the impropriety to defile 
our sacred abode but wished 
to actively campaign against 
the scurrilous deeds. 

The scholar feared that it 
may not be sufficient to de- 
falcate the activity of the 
offenders. He feared that 
the signs are symptomatic of 
a much more perfidious blight- - 
An "impurity of essence." The 
gramineous soil, he said, is 
the base on which our educa- 
tional hierarchy is erected. 
If this foundation gives way 
to the dreggy products of 
negligent offscourings, we 
may, like Humpty Dumpty, ex- 
perience a great fall. 

The scholar told of warning 
his colleagues, who passed off 
the foreboding with mint- 

p mirthfulness. He cautioned 
his students, who occasionally 
respond to the on -looking eye of 
academic command. But the attri- 
tion had seeped into the very 
fibre of the community constitu- 
tion. 

After a lengthy discussion 
of the matter, we both agreed 
that it is necessary to pre- 
vail upon the students and 
faculty to be more conscious of 
littering, so that we may clean 
up the garbage. It has also 
been suggested that we clean 
up our verbiage.

Old Rock -nd Roll, specifically 
the rock and roll of the 1950 's. 
This period is known as the Clas-

They appear with slicked-

gleam in their eyes is per- 
haps more than stage presence. 
Sha Na Na may be satire, but 
like all good satire it is 

ed seriously, and some- 

s the actors can't tell 
if they're kidding or not. 

Sha Na Na garnered the all- 
time encore record at the Fill-

played a thirty-minute set 
at the Fillmore East which earned 
them ten standing ovations --

Biology 



There will be a meeting of' 
people interested in forming 
a Biology Club at Centenary 
College. One need not be a 
i science or biology major to 
attend; an interest in the 
life sciences and their im- 
pact on society today is a 
good place to start. The 
meeting will be held Thurs- 
day, Oct. 7, at 7:30 p. m. 
in Room 209, Mickle Hall. 

Tests 

An interpretation of the 
tests taken by entering fresh-

the tests, said she will meet 
with the students who wish to 
have an interpretation of the 
results of the tests. 

The interviews will be held

There it was, on the front

the possibility that Nixon 
might appoint a woman to the Su-

Gait 



If you've ever wondered who 
in the world John Gait is, your 
chance to find out has arrived. 
Jeff Daiell, a junior transfer 
student from Florida, is or- 
ganizing a gTOup to discuss the 
works and philosophy of authoress 
Ayn Rand, who "invented" John 
Gait in one of her best -selling 
novels. The group, Daiell says, 
will offer "a philosophy of life, 
as opposed to other philosophies 
of death, self-sacrifice, self- 
debasement, and self -degradation. 
As John Gait says, 'I am the man 
who loves his life.'" 

They meet this Sunday at

Gentlets Look Promising 



After fielding a junior 
varsity team last year, the 
Centenary Gents will return to 
having a freshman basketball 
team this year. This year's 
freshman team has the po- 
tential to be a very exciting 
one as Head Coach Larry Little 
and assistant Riley Wallace 
have gone all over the coun- 
try to recruit a number of out- 
standing prospects . This 
group includes Leon Johnson, 
Jerry Waugh, Bill Bergman, 
Fred Niebrugge, Rick Jacobs, 
Dale Kinkelaar, Stan Welker, 
and Frank Parks. 

Leon Johnson, a 6' 5" 
forward from Newark, New Jer- 
sey, averaged 26.5 points per 
game in three years at Essex 
County Technical High School 
and received feelers from 250 
colleges. He had a single 
game high of 42 points. His 
many honors include being named 
to the All-State First Team 
and also to the All-Metro- 
politan First Team by the New 
York Daily News. For the latter 
award he was in competition 
with high school players from 
the entire New York City metro- 
politan area. 

A 6' 5" forward from Ok- 
lahoma City, Jerry Waugh is 
expected to bring both scoring 
and rebounding assistance to 
the Gentlets this year. In 
his last two years at North- 
west-Classen High School, he 
helped them to a 44-11 record 
and a berth in the State AAAA 
tournament both years. A

Panola Bombs 
Gents Twice 

The Panola Junior Col- 
lege Ponies were rude guests at 
the Centenary baseball diamond 
Wednesday night as they won 
both ends of a doubleheader 
from the Gents 8-2 and 11-7. 
Timely hitting by the Ponies 
and fielding lapses by the 
Gents contributed to the vic- 
tories . 

The first game was a close 

one until the top of the 6th 
inning when Panola erupted for 
5 runs . The Ponies banged out 
10 hits while the Gents got 
only 3. Dan Sparrow pitched 5 
strong innings for the Gents. 

The Ponies jumped out to a 
big lead in the second game 
with 6 runs in the 2nd inning, 
but the Gents came back to tie 
the game 7-7 with a 6-run ral- 
ly in the 5th. A 2 -run double 
by Jim Pedro and a 2 -run single 
by Perry Peyton keyed the rally. 
The Ponies, however, quickly 
retaliated with 4 runs in 
the 6th to insure the victory. 

The two losses bring the 
Gents' record to 4-5-1; they 
close their fall schedule next 
Friday when they journey to 
Carthage for another double - 
ola. 



senior year, he averaged 20 
points and 12 rebounds a game. 
He was chosen as a member of 
the All -State team by the 
Daily Oklahoman and was named 
All -City by the Oklahoma City 
Times. 

At 6' 6'.', strong reboun- 
ding Bill Bergman from Parker, 
Colorado, is expected to see 
action at center for the Gent- 
lets. An All -Conference per- 
former his final two years at 
Douglas County High School , 
he averaged 16.5 points and 15 
rebounds a game. As a junior, 
he led Douglas County to 
second place in the state. 

An all-around athlete, Fred 
Niebrugge is an outstanding 
guard recruit from Teutopolis, 
Illinois. An excellent play- 
maker, he averaged 16.4 points 
per game his senior year while 
leading Teutopolis to a 25-3 
record. Besides basketball, 
he also won letters in baseball 
and track. 

6' 4" Rick Jacobs, another 
blue-chip guard from Illinois, 
was named to the All -State Team 
the Chicago Daily Tribune, the' 
Chicago Daily News, the Illi- 
nois Sports Writers' Association, 
and the Associated Press. He 
averaged 19.3 points per game 
as he led Mendota High School 
to a 27-2 record last year. 
A three year starter, he had 
a career average of 18.5 
points per game. 

A third Illinois guard 
recruit, 6' 3" Dale Kinkelaar, 
averaged 21.6 points per game as 
he led St. Anthony's High School 
of Effingham to a 25-2 
record last year. An outside 
shooter he received honorable 
mention on the All-State squads 
of the Chicago Daily News and 
the Rockford Morning Star. 

Stan Welker, a 6' 1" 
guard from Putnam City High 
School in Oklahoma, received 
All -State recognition as he 
led Putnam City to a 21-5 
record and a berth in the State 
4A tournament. A three sport 
performer in high school, 
Welker will also play infield 
for the Gents' baseball team. 
Baseball recruit , 6' 1" 
Frank Parks from Dallas W. T. 
White High School, will also be 
on the freshman squad to add 
depth at the guard position. 
With this fine group of 
recruits, Gent fans can expect 
a strong freshman team this 
year and plenty of exciting ac- 
tion.

Gents Split With ETBC 



Frank Parks' 2 -run double 
capped a 4 -run 7th inning as 
the Centenary Gents came from be- 
hind to defeat East Texas Bap- 
tist College, 6-5, in the first 
game of Saturday's doubleheader 
in Marshall, Tex. The Tigers 
won the second game 1-0 be- 
hind the pitching of Jim 
Rodgers and Mike Holland. 

In the first game the Gents 
fell behind 5-2 in the third 
inning before they staged their 
big rally in the 7th. Dan 
Sparrow pitched 3 shut-out 
innings to receive the victory. 
Lefty Sam Park who had completely 
baffled the Gents in an earlier 



game in Shreveport was the losing 
pitcher. 

The Tigers scored a run in 
the 1st inning of the second game 
on a wild pitch by John Murphy 
and then made it stand up for 
the 1-0 victory. Murphy and 
Perry Peyton both turned in 
good pitching performances for 
the Gents in the loss.

the Caddo Pariah Police Jury. 
People who want to sea our Par- 
ish grow, and help make it a 
better place for our children to 
grow in. 

The Police Jury makes decis- 
ion; which will affect your 
family and mine for years to 
come. For this reason I will 
establish a polling plan in which 
the citizens of my district can 
contact me personally concern- 
ing matters facing the jury. 

I want to stop the growing 
number of youth from leaving 
our Parish. These are the back- 
bone of our community and I 
will do everything in my power 
to create better job opportuni- 
ties, and better harmony with 
their elected official*. 

When elected. T will be a full- 
time representative of the peo- 
ple. I want my campaign to be 
a people campaign and I will 
greatly appreciate your help and 
vote to make OUR campaign a 
success.

Conglomerate Exclusive: 
Interviewing the Imperial 
Wizard of the KKK p. 5, 



The Hamilton Hall Papers 



By Kathy Parrish 

Editor's Note: Kathy Parrish' s 
article on the duties of the col- 
lege president, the first in a 
series of articles to acquaint 
students with the personalities 
of Hamilton Hall, is the result 
of a lengthy interview with Dr. 
Allen. 

As president of Centenary 
College, John Morton Allen's 
main responsibility is to ad- 
minister the affairs of the col- 
lege. He is the only person 
on the campus who is directly 
responsible to the board of 
trustees for any activities on 
the campus. His administrative 
powers include the following: 
n.j hiring faculty, (2.) hi- 
ring administration, and (3.) 
supervising the budget. The 
hiring of the faculty members 
is done chiefly through the 
' head of the department , but 
there is also a committee of 
faculty members that inter- 
views the candidate; however, the 
president has the power to ne- 
gate an appointment. Since 
the office is one of great res- 
ponsibility, it seems only prac- 
tical that powers be delegated 
to capable persons. Thus the 
birth of the administrative 
council . 

Comprising this group are 
the dean of the college, the 
dean of students, the comptrol- 
ler, and the director of deve- 
i . According to Presi- 
at Allen, ' ally i 

those offices is an exten- 



sion of this office." The dean 
of the college is the function- 
al representative to the aca- 
demic affairs of the college; 
he operates the academic facet 
of the institution. He is also 
liason between the faculty and 

Six Freshmen In 

The Running for 
Senate Positions 



Six freshmen have qualified 
with the Elections Committee to 
run for Freshman Senator in Monday's 
election, while only one student 
has qualified for SGA Secretary. 
Freshman Senatorial candidates are 
Mike Griffin, Jeff Hendricks, 
Debbie Pollard, Cindi Rush, Martha 
Stobaugh, and Cindy Yeast. Junior 
Sandy Bogucki has qualified for 
SGA Secretary. Candidates wishing 
to run as write-ins should con- 
tact Chris Carey, Sherry Lewis, 
or Barry Fulton immediately 

Three of the freshman can- 
didates will be picked Monday 
to serve as Freshman Senator. 
Voting, including decisions to 
be made on an issues referendum, 
will be held from 9 a. m. to 
4p.m. Monday in the SUB. All 
full-time students can vote, 
and must be certain to have their 
Centenary ID card with them. On- 
ly freshmen can participate in 
the balloting for Freshman Sena- 
tor.

administration. The financial 
phase of the college is under 
the direction of the comptrol- 
ler. In regard to audits of 
the books there are two per- 
formed each year: one inter- 
nally- -by someone regularly em- 
ployed by the college, and the 
other externally - a professional 
auditing firm off campus. The 
dean of students is emissary 
from the office of the president 
to the student body as a whole, 
while the director of develop- 
ment raises money for the college, 
Each Monday morning the admini- 
strative council convenes. The 
rule is that even if two members 
are on campus they meet to dis- 
cuss problems and applications. 
President Allen's approach to 
this policy making body is "to 
ask questions to indicate the 
direction of my thinking," ra- 
ther than state his way as the 
way . 

"The actual, day-by-day du- 
ties of the president include 
contact with the board members, 
students and faculty, and an 
overwhelming amount of corres- 
pondence. Each day the chair- 
man of the board, Mr. George 
Nelson, talks with Dr. Allen 
either on the phone, or over 
lunch. Appointments with facul- 
ty and students are arranged 
trying to limit the number to 
no more than two per hour. Cor- 
respondence comes from parents, 
lents, citizens, board mem- 
, and agencies. President 
Allen tries to answer each let- 
ter he re« eives . He also h

Senate, Where Are You? 

Along with the crisp fall weather comes a flurry of activi- 
ty this year at Centenary. Elections are being held to fill 
senate positions , there are the statewide elections , Senator Allen 
Ellender is due to come here for a fund-raising dinner at the end 
of the month, or so it is rumored, and no one can find the stu- 
dent senate. 

We know where they are, of course. After having met the first 
two weeks of the year, they suddenly voted to hold meetings only 
once every two weeks instead of weekly as before . There is not 
enough to do, they said. Meanwhile the student body remains in 
the dark about campus activities. For example, campaign speeches 
for freshmen senatorial candidates were held this past week, 
dra/ing an audience of about five people. Why? Because no one 
knew about it beforehand. October 21 is the date on which Senator 
Ellender is due to speak here at Centenary in an attempt to raise 
funds for student senate projects. The publicity for that has 
been absolutely nil so far, and as far as we can tell, no one 
knows exactly whose job it is. 

We would suggest to the senate that there is perhaps quite 
a lot to do; more that enough to warrent resuming weekly meetings. 
There needs to be a close examination of publicity methods and some 
firm decisions about who is to carry out some of the programs which 
that body has proposed. It seems like a horrible waste for all 
the ideas and projects which have come up this year to go for 
naught because of lack of preparation, it would seem even worse 
for that to happen simply because no one knows what is going on 
here. ° * 



Speaker's 
Corner 

The Coed Dorm Story 

Last year there was a movement on campus to establish a 
coed dormitory. The committee on student life tried to get 
the opinions of the students concerning such a development, As 
I remember, there was no real opposition from any faction of the 
student body or even from the administration. The proposal, which 
arrived via the Student Senate to the student activities committee 
late in the spring semester, stated that the student body, or 
at least a majority, wanted a coed dorm. No real structure had 
been provided- -only the fact that Hardin Hall had been suggested 
as the only feasible location. Due to the apnarent lack of con- ' 
cern on the part of students as to whether the proposal passed, 
and due to the lack of time on the part of the committee, the 
proposal was never acted upon. 

Again this year, there seems to be a movement on campus to es- 
tablish a coed dormitory. WSGA has a committee, headed by myself, 
to set up a structure for this living condition, but only if 
there is adequate student response to the issue . Why go to all 
the trouble, one wonders, of even setting up guidelines if no 
one is concerned? There will be a meeting for all students to 
discuss ideas concerning this dorm as soon as enough ideas be- 
come apparent. Please send in your applications so progress can 
be made .

certain "civic responsibilities," 
for he does represent the col- 
lege, not only in the community 
of Shreveport, but also in other 
communities. Some examples of 
his excursions are (1.) New 
Orleans to a meeting of the 
presidents of private colleges 
and universities to formulate 
an association of private schools, 
and (2.) Biloxi (extra-curricu- 
lar) to a meeting of the Heart 
Association, because he is a 
national committeeman for the 
American Heart Association. 

When out for "extra-curricular 
activities" he works a little 
harder before he leaves and a 
lot harder when he returns, like 
even on weekends. In the com- 
munity itself, he is a money 
raiser. Many of his luncheon 
engagements are with donors, 
to listen to their ideas as 
to what their money should be 
used for. 

In essence the duties of 
the president are many and 
varied. The most frequent being 
that of a representative of 
Centenary College, which John 
Horton Allen does quite well.

To Speak Here 



Dr. John Cooper

With commitments tighten- 
ing as statewide Election Day 
nears, gubernatorial candidates

Mock Election 

On Nov. 3, once the last 
candidate has said his piece, a 
campus-wide mock election will 
be held, under the direction 
of the Elections Committee. 
All members of the campus com - 
munity , be they tun or part- 
time students, faculty, or ad- 
ministrators, will be eligible 



He is an ordained Lutheran 
minister and has served as pss- 
tor of several congregations. 
He is married" and has four chil- 
dren. He served in the Marine 
Corps in the Korean War. 

He holds professional mem- 
berships in the American Aca- 
demy of Religion, American Philo- 
sophical Association, and the So- 
ciety for Existentialism and 
Phenomenology . 

He is the author of 10 books, 
including the roots of radical . 

THEOLOGY, RADICAL CHRISTIANITY AND 
ITS SOURCES, THE NEW MENTALITY, 
THE TURN RIGHT, and RELIGION IN 
THE AGE OF AQUARIUS. 

He has published over 25 
different articles in such pub- 
lications as CHRISTIAN CENTURY, 
CHRISTIANITY TODAY, SOUTHERN 
HUMANITIES JOURNAL, the LUTHERAN 

Ouasterly, and the southern jour- 
nal OF PHILOSOPHY . 

Dr. Cooper will speak at 
10:40 a. m. in Brown Chapel, to 
a gathering of students and facul- 
ty. He will lead discussions 
with small groups and in classes 
during the day. His topic will 
be "Religion In the Age of 
Aquarius"- -The Recent Turn In- 
ward of College Youth." In his 
book on this subject he explores 
the recent rise of interest in 
the occult in the United States 
and its implications for the 
modern search for meaning. 

Richard A. Matzek, reviewing 
Dr. Cooper's book in the New York - 
Times Book Review , said: "Why 
should the prince of darkness 
(the occult) be reborn under 
the harsh lights of a technologi- 
cal age? The answer, Cooper 
suggests lies in the psychological 
anxieties resulting in great part 
from the failure of both science 
and organized religion to im- 
prove the quality of life . 
Well aware of the appeal and 
the dangers of occultism, Cooper 
calls instead for a 'theology 
of environmental awareness' which 
unifies creation, preserves mys- 
tery and is constructively geared 
to the contemporary needs of man."

Experimental Printmaking . 
This course will give students 
an opportunity to experiment in 
forms of printing that would not 
be dealt with ordinarily in a 
regular printing class. The stu- 
dent will make use of materials 
such as plastic and acrylics, that 
were unknown to printmakers of 
earlier times. The class will 
be limited to approximately 8 
students. Students who are in- 
terestsd in the course should 
have a background in art , and 
should talk to Mr. Cooper of the 
art department before enrolling 
in the class. 

BIOLOGY 1-99 

Parasitology . This course 
will be centered mainly on para- 
sites as they relate to health 
problems. The purpose of the 
course is to acquaint pre-med 
students with parasitology. The 
class will take field trips to 
various medical centers so that 
the students can become familiar 
with some of the laboratory tech- 
niques involved in parasitology. 

There are no absolute pre- 
requisites , although prospective 
students should have had a course 
in chemistry and biology. The 
class will be limited to about 
10 people. Anyone desiring fur- 
ther information about the course 
should talk to Dr. Wilkins.

These two interim programs are 
the same course. Credit for this 
course can be earned in the biolo- 
gy, chemistry, or physics depart- 
ments. During the first week of 
study, to be spent at Centenary, 
the students will become familiar 
with what they will be doing 
at Oak Ridge. The other weeks will 
be spent at Oak Ridge. There the 
students will be shown the types 
of instruments and methods used 
in measuring radioactivity, and 
will practice the methods by mea- 
suring the radioactivity of 
different substances. There will 
be some applications to these 
techniques , such as the effects 
of radioactivity on mice. The 
students will also tour a nu- 
clear museum and the Oak Ridge 
National Laboratory. 

The cost of this course will 
be approximately $150. There are 
no prerequisites for the course 
but it will be helpful to the 
student if he has taken or is 
currently enrolled in chemistry 
and calculus. Anyone who would 
like some more information about 
the course should contact Dr. 
Lowrey of the chemistry depart- 
ment.

right away. 

EDUCATION 1-99 
PSYCHOLOGY 1-99 

The Disadvantaged Child. As 
a joint education-psychology cre- 
dit offering, Dr. Dorothy Gwin's 
course will include attempts to 
define, identify, and directly 
deal with the problems of dis- 
advantaged youth. In the three- 
week course, Dr. Gwin will help 
students determine the magnitude 
of the problem in order to ap- 
praise special services provided 
by the community and "develop 
other ways that might be available 
to help." 

Dr. Gwin hopes it will "be a 
very questioning kind of course," 
as she intends to look at value 
systems, to see if the "disad- 
vantaged" are. really that way 
just from "our" point of view. 
The course will involve experi- 
ences with disadvantaged young- 
sters, possibly working through 
the Caddo and Bossier Parish 
school systems. The course will 
be oriented toward the interests 
of education and psychology stu- 
dents . 

ENGLISH 1-99 

Writing Woikshop . No 
textbooks will be used in this 
course, which will be structured 
around the students' writing, and 
discussion of their works. Dr. 
Joan Girlinghouse, who will be 
teaching the course, pointed out 
that students will be .required 
to read from current periodicals. 
To help the student who may pos- 
sibly wish to publish his work 
in the future, discussions on 
copyright laws, manuscript prepa- 
ration, and market information 
is planned. 

English 101 is a prerequi- 
site for this course. Students 



dan Behan, Jonathan Swift, and 
other literary figures, there 
will be lectures and seminars at 
the Institute of Irish Studies 
dealing with Ireland's literature, 
history, and cultural background. 
Students will also have the oppor- 
tunity to meet some of Ireland's 
poets and writers. The three-week 
trip will conclude with an unusual 
Medieval Banquet near Shannon. 
Although there are no pre- 
requisites for this course, the 
students will be required to do 
some preliminary reading, ac- 
cording to Dr. Fergal Gallagher, 
sponsor of the tour. During 
the spring semester students will 
write papers relating to their 
studies. The approximate cost of 
the course is $900. 
PWSICS 1-99 
PSYCHOLOGY 1-99 
Psychic Phenomenon . In- 
terested in learning about witch- 
craft, and perhaps even increas- 
ing your own psychic powers? Ac- 
cording to Mark Dulle, psycholo- 
gy professor and co- instructor of 
the course with ■John Williams of 
the physics department, the 
study will concentrate on such 
subject as psychokinesis, psychic 
healing, reincarnation, and tele- 
pathy. Dulle noted that a com- 
puter program would be available 
for those students who wish to 
test their powers of of pre- 
cognition and clairvoyance. 
He also pointed out that hypnosis 
would be used "to some extent 
in an attempt to increase the 
psychic powers of the participants. 

If a good "haunted house" 
can be located in the Shreveport 
area, a field trip will be added. 
There are no prerequisites . Due 
to the enthusiastic response 
shown so far, any student interes- 
ted should register as soon as 
possible before the rolls are full.

Sandy Bogucki 
Only Secretary 
Candidate So Far 



I have decided to run for 
the office of Secretary of the 
SGA simply as an interested stu- 
dent who is tired of sitting 
back and letting others make the 
decisions by which I will have 
to abide. I make no promises of 
radical change in the student 
government; my only promise 
is to perform all duties desig- 
nated to the Secretary of the 
organization, and to represent 
to the best of my knowledge the 
best interests of the majority 
of the student population. My 
record of fulfillment of duties 
for other organizations on cam^- 
pus, I believe, supports this 
promise . 



Mike Griffin Calls 
For Responsible 
Revolution 



As freshmen we find our- 
selves faced for the first time 
with an opportunity to partici- 
pate in self-government. We 
now have the capability to work 
together and strive for change 
which will hopefully benefit 
our campus society. I believe 
this can be accomplished through 
what we might call a "respon- 
sible revolution." Critical 
evaluation of certain situations 
and firm but cautious action are 
characteristic of such a revo- 
lution. 

Work has already begun to 
establish a better social pro- 
gram. I see Dean Miller's pro- 
gram for renovation of the SUB 
as an initial thrust toward social 
activity and variety which might 
well revitalize and involve the 
student body. I would like to 
see and work on more programs 
along this line. The old ad- 
ministration building, for in- 
stance, presents a wide variety 
of possibilities. 

Freshman parking facilities 
are within the realm of considera- 
tion. If we as freshmen were 
allowed to keep cars on campus 
we would be better able to par- 
ticipate in social life in 
Shreveport and the surrounding 
area as well as on the campus. 
The facilities can be made avail- 
able through the SGA. 

Freshman orientation has 
always been a thom in the sides 
of the administration and fresh- 
men. Many of the jobs in orien- 
tation could be handled by stu- 
dents to alleviate some of the 
problems, for both the admini- 
stration and the incoming fresh- 
men. In addition, we might con- 
sider the advent of a Sr. advisor 
to offer advice which comes from 
experience . 

I would like to bring 
change- -not solely for the sake 
of change, but for the sake of 
creating a social atmosphere 
designed for the students of this 
college.

"It is not enough to be 
busy; so are the ants. The 
question is: What are we busy 
about?" 

— Henry David Thoreau 

Centenary College Freshman 
Class 1971-72. Bewildered, be- 
draggled, busy, and bothered. 
The Sesquicentennial Class. 

Wow! 

As new college freshmen con- 
fronted with a drastic change in 
our life -style in the transition 
from high school to college, most 
of us have been extremely busy 
for our first month in school. 
Seeing new faces , new names , and 
new places has kept us on the 
move. However, the time has 
come when we are beginning to 
settle down, and the luster of 
our new freedom has begun to 
grown dim. I feel that it is 
most important that at this 
point we should ask ourselves, 
"What are we busy about?" 

If we are to be a con- 
scientious freshman class, we 
must reflect upon this question 
and then act accordingly. It 
is so very easy at this stage 
to not expand our social con- 
tacts , or to not get involved in 
campus activities, or to not 
really even care whether the 
college will be there when we 
awake the next morning. It 
is too easy to withdraw within 
the confines of our own particu- 
lar groups of intimates, and 
never become a part of the college 
community as a whole. This 
has been the fate of many fresh- 
man classes in the past. 

However, for our class to 
go the way that too many before 
us have gone would be a shameful 
waste. The vast amount of 
talent, creativity, and enthu- 
siasm that we possess as a class 
could produce effective improve- 
ments here at Centenary College. 
There are situations such as 
the park for under-priviledged 
kids and Open Ear that are ex- 
cellent opportunities for both 
personal and campus -wide involve- 
ment. But we must make the best 
of our opportunities, for poten- 
tial without actualization is 
worthless . 

As a senator, I would do 
my best to exploit this potential 
and to make our class an effec- 
tive influence in the college 
community. I can only hope that 
you will allow me this opportunity

Martha Stobaugh Cindi Rush Wants 
Shuns Rhetoric Everyone to Talk 



My name is Martha Stobaugh. 

I 'm a candidate for freshman 
senator. 

I'll skip the traditional 
"jokes" and speech making "tricks, 1 
because that's not what you're 
here for, and besides, I'm not 
that funny, at least not inten- 
tionally. I won't spend the next 
few minutes talking about myself, 
but rather discussing my ideas 
and opinions of Centenary. 

As typical freshman, and 
by the way, we're considered 
one of the smartest freshman 
classes , you probably came to 
Centenary as I did, with many 
pre-conceived ideas. When 
the recruiters came to see you 
they probably gave you a long 
spiel about how Centenary has 
-something for everyone.' Then 
you heard the stories of certain 
terrible administrators , the 
"dead" campus, the prison-like 
dorms, and that the cafeteria 
served dog food. But when I 
arrived on campus I found that 
many positive changes had been 
made. The dorms, although 
strict, were giving freshman 
keys second semester, allowing 
12:00 sign-out on week nights 
and allowing girls in the boys' 
dorms. The administration had 
taken on several new faces . 
There was a young Student Ac- 
tivities Director and a new 
Dean of Students, who has been 
taking immediate steps toward 
changing the campus to meet the 
students' needs, not the adminis- 
stration's, or the financier's, 
or the alumni. He has proposed 
the renovation of the SUB and, 
perhaps, most important of all, 
he is seeking out the students' 
ideas. To me, the most impor- 
tant function of a leader is 
to co-ordinate the ideas of 
others into action. This is 
true in student government also. 
Your senator should be able 
to co-ordinate your ideas as 
well-as his own . I do think 
that definite improvements can 
be made in the cafeteria. I 
also believe more activities 
should be brought on campus. 
No one can expect students to 
stay on campus without more 
activities. I would like to 
see many more students become 
a part of Centenary, whether it's 
through intramurals or whatever. 
I would also like to see a coed 
dorm. But I won't stand up here 
and insult your intelligence by 
making a lot of rash promises of 
what I 'm gonna change , because 



While preparing my campaign 
to run for Freshman Senator, I 
found that there is a need for 
better communication within the 
i Senate and between the students 
and their governing body. The ide- 
as of the students and the ideas 
and plans of the Senate need 
to be brought together. A 
person is needed who will bridge 
this gap of communication in the 
freshman class. This person 
should be responsible and willing 
to work toward this unification. 
Yet, he also should be able to 
make active contributions to the 
Senate. These, to me, are .the 
most important ideals that a mem- 
ber of student government can 
possess because without them 
nothing can be accomplished. 

I have had three years of 
experience in student govern- 
ment both locally, in my high 
school, and state-wide in stu- 
dent council workshops. I 
have also had experience through 
being editor of my high school's 
newspaper and yearbook. Besides 
these activities in high school, 
I feel that I have the ideals 
mentioned before. I have spo- 
ken to a variety of people, 
Greek and Independent, and I 
believe that I could represent 
both of these groups fairly. 

"Come together right now" is 
part of a song but it applies to 
what is needed on this campus. 
The students and Senate need 
to be closer and more united. 
More open communication can ac- 
complish this and the right 
Freshman Senator can be helpful 
in establishing these lines of 
communication. 



you know as well as I do that J_ 
can't change things, but that we 
can as a unified body. So far, 
the freshman class has acquired 
a reputation for being a class 
with a lot of potential but 
no go! I disagree with this. I 
think we merely lack leadership. 
The cafeteria "crisis" showed 
th2t students can pull together 
and get things done. I am wil- 
ling and eager to work for the 
betterment of Centenary. But 
let's not kid ourselves, it will 
take you the students wanting 
these changes before we can ac- 
complish anything. 

So, if you believe as I do, 
that Centenary has changed and 
can continue to do so, then I 
ask for your vote for me for 
freshman senator.

Cindy Yeast Rises, 
Becomes Involved 

Here we are- -Freshmen again. 
It seems like we labored four 
years to become Seniors and to 
graduate, but then, before we hard- 
ly had tine to enjoy our high 
station in life, ZVP we are right 
back at the bottom looking un. 
This time it is different, though. 
We have a whole new ladder to 
climb. It is also a time when 
we can review the past four 
years of our life and try to 
learn by all those mistakes we 
made. We have been given a sec- 
ond chance to improve ourselves 
before stepping out into the 
adult world. 

The reviewing of my high 
school mistakes is what first 
began my interest in Student 
Senate here at Centenary. Du- 
ring high school I was very 
active in many organizations, but 
I always shied away from student 
government . I was interested in 
my school's Student Council, 
but I never participated. I 
always thought that other 
people should run Student Coun- 
cil, and that it was useless for 
me to even attempt to become 
a part . Now I see how wrong 
my thinking was during that 
time. Student government concerns 
everyone. All one needs to do is 
show a little interest, and short- 
ly he finds that he is getting 
involved. 

Involvement is an important 
word, because I believe that it 
is an essential element in keeping 
a school from becoming stagnant 
and apathetic. In order for a 
class to become and to stay in- 
volved in the operation of its 
school, it needs to be repre- 
sented by a few students who act ■ 
as the spokesmen of the class. 
The most important requirement 
for successful representation 
is that this representation is 
of the class and not of the in- 
dividual representative. 

I feel that I can give you 
this representation. I have at- 
tended Senate meetings and talked 
with some of the Senators , and 
I am aware of what my responsi- 
bility will involve. I believe 
that I can bring our class into 
the life process of Centenary. 

I make no promises except 
to be a representative of our 
class and not of myself. I have 
been the "common man" in my 
former schools too long to for- 
get how it feels to have no 
voice in school affairs. Involve 
me so that I may help involve 
you.

Way Right on 
Everything 

Fallow students, illus- 
trated faculty members, venerated 
board of trustees, I welcome the 
challenge such an office as 
freshman senator yields . I feel 
it an exciting opportunity to 
wield responsibility. My first 
plank is coed dorms. I strongly 
feel it is absolutely necessary 
and, therefore, should be. It 
is therfore feasible to say that 
coed dorms are a good idea. 

It is also about time to 
stash our trash. We need to 
manicure this campus. I pro- 
pose plastic bags be handed out 
to all students; this will help 
insure a joint effort to clip 
this unnecessary evil. 

I propose to bring about 
sexual equality on this campus. 
For too long women have been 
treated as subhumans incapable 
of assuming responsibility. Ar- 
chaic regulations governing dress 
and housing have harbored this 
oppression here, too. I challenge 
us all to work toward removing 
these medieval attitudes and re- 
placing them with sane ideas. 
I will stay interested in 
the problems of the freshman 
class until they have met their 
solutions. As senator, I would 
welcome suggestions from all 
constituents. 

In thse days of apathy and 
responsibility shirking, I say 
"No!" and urge you to vote for 
me because I never lie and I 'm 
always right. So wake up and 
face your only viable alterna- 
tive- -me.

with included Jess Gilbert, Steve 
Lorant, and Steve Brown. Our 
first objective in the trip to 
nil City was. to secure a speak- 
ing date from Robert Shelton for 

forums series. We 
parked across the highway, then 
walked to the pasture, where we 
were greeted by three somber 
diaos in grey uniforms. Noticing 
their hardware (38-caliber 
pistols and night sticks), we 
timidly asked if Steve Lorant 
could chat with Shelton about 
the sneaking date. We were 
left behind while Steve was es- 
corted by a fellow named Jimmie 
Davis (not "one of us") to 
Shelton 's guarded trailer. 

It was some time before Steve 
returned, and Jess, Steve Brown, 
and I were wondering exactly 
what had happened. A large crew- 
cut guy in a mechanic's uniform 
bearing "Vivian Body Shop" blessed 
us with his presence until Steve 
emerged from the other side of 
the pasture. Then it was my turn. 
Jimmie Davis directed me to a 
threesome standing in front of 
a trailer, and told me that the 
man in the blue shirt was none 
other than the fabled Robert 
Shelton. 

The dialogue went something 
like this: 

Reporter: F.r, uh, how y'all 
doin^ I'jii Dean Whiteside from 
the Centenary College newspaper. 
I wonder if I could get an in- 
terview with Mr. Shelton. 
Old Man in Brown Suit: 
side, Hey, did ya get it? 
side. (Much laughter). I 
that name. 

Grizzly Man in Shirt and 
Tie: Where you from? Shreve- 
port? 

Reporter: (In best drawl) 
Little Rock, Ark. 

Grizzly: (Smiles approvingly) 
Good people in Arkansas. 

Shelton: Come on in the 
trailer where we can talk. 

Reporter: (Glancing over 
shoulder at smiling armed guard) 
Uh , thanks . 

Brown Suit: Good to see ya, 
WHITE-side. 

Reporter: (Smiles faintly, 
says nothing, and follows Shel- 
ton past two guards into the 
trailer) 

Shelton: I've had speaking 
engagements in North Carolina, 
Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana, 
and Texas during the last twelve 
weeks. Travelled 24,000 miles. 
Reporter: Were these open 
to the public? 

Shelton: Yes. You see our 
most basic influence is with sym- 
pathizers. Rut we don't tell 
people how to vote. When a man 
goes to the polling place it's 
between him and God. You know 
our organization is Christian, 
founded and organized. We're 
fighting for the survival of 
Christianity. 

Reporter: Uh. Hmmm. What 
are you basically concerned with? 
Shelton: The issue out front 
today is Communism. You know 
Communism is synonymous with 
Zionist Judaism. A Zionist Jew 
named Marx invented Communism. 
A New York Jew financed the Com- 
munist Revolution in Russia. He 
deposited $20 million dollars 
in a Swiss bank in the name of 
Trotsky- -whose real name was 
Bernstein. You know all the 
presidents of the N. A. A. C. P. 
have been Zionist Jews and not 
nigrahs. That 1964 housing bill 
designed to kill white neighbor- 
hoods was by a Jew. Rev. Jesse 



Jackson wants a Marshall Plan 
for the niggers. 

Reporter: (Still glancing 
at guards) Are there any other 
problems the Klan is concerned 
with? 

Shelton: Immorality in 
youth. There's 2% militants 
with 101 following. They're 
lowering the quality of the three 
R's. And those Rock festivals. 
Zionist Jews are promoters. 
They're breaking the murals 
and every one is financed by 
a Zionist Jew. 

Reporter: Well, that's 
about all I want to know. Thank 
you for the interview. By 
the way, are you going to speak 
at Centenary? 

Shelton: I'll probably be 
there in January. 

Shelton 's speech began after 
a lenghthy introduction from the 
Louisiana Klan leader, who said 
that he was proud to be associ- 
ated with a jailbird (referring 
to Shelton 's sentence for refu- 
sing information to the House 
Un-American Activities Committee) 

Shelton spoke only a few 
minutes, then showed a film en- 
titled "Revolution Underway." 
(The film had allegedly been 
shown by George D'Artois on one 
occasion) . It was obviously 
slanted against Blacks and Reds, 
and the only sound from the 
crowd came from a drunk seated 
behind us that exclaimed, "Look: 
The damn niggers are burning a 
city!" 

After the film, the intoxica- 
ted soul_behind us responded with 
a little too much exuberance to 
one of Shelton's remarks. Five 
men (in silk garb with pointed 
hats) quietly and efficiently re- 
moved him from the audience. 
Other than explaining that Christ 
was not a Jew (He came from God's 
seed), Shelton's remarks were 
identical with the interview. 
Bored with redundant remarks 
like "Call a spade a spade," and 
"If the shoe fits, wear it," our 
group decided to leave early 
before the cross burning. We 
crent past the crew cuts in the 
shadow of the cross and left. 

Historical note: John Hin- 
kle , in a New Orleans Times 
Picayune article (Oct. 3, 1971) 
provides this information con- 
cerning the Klan's beginnings: 
"The Klan had an innocent 
beginning. In 1866 six' young 
Tennesseans founded a secret 
society based on the defunct 
college fraternity, Kappa 
Alpha (Kuklos Adelphon) . Kuklos, 
Greek for 'Circle,' was changed 
to Ku Klux and Klan was added 
for the alliterative effect. 
Within six weeks the Klan changed 
from a prank-playing fun group 
to a band of 'regulators,' or un- 
official police. Within a year 
it spread throughout the South. 
"The organization became so 
disreputable that in 1869 Gen. 
Nathan Bedford Forrest, the only 
grand wizard the Invisible Em- 
pire ever had, ordered curtail- 
ment of activity and discarding 
of masks. Bad men had entered 
the organization and perverted 
it from its original purposes, 
he declared. 

"Later he ordered disband- 
ment, and the wizard, dragons, 
titans, giants, cyclops, genii, 
hydras, furies, goblins, night- 
hawks, magi, monks, turks, sen- 
tinels, ensigns, yahoos, cen- 
taurs , ghouls and other ranks 
in the complex command gradual- 
ly and reluctantly faded into 
oblivion."

Team is returning to the field 
under the direction of Miss Ruth 
Alexander of the Playhouse. 
The team, once organized, will 
travel the debating circuit 
arguing the pros and cons of 
this year's resolution, "Re- 
solved: That greater controls 
should be imposed on the gather- 
ing and utilization of infor- 
mation about U. S. citizens by 
government agencies." 

Centenary squad members 
will also enter various in- 
dividual events at collegiate 
tournaments , including drama- 
tic interpretation, extem- 
poraneous speaking, and original 
oratory. 

All members selected for the 
team will have had previous 
experience in forensics. Any- 
one with such experience and in- 
terested in qualifying should 
contact Miss Alexander (5243) 
at the Plavhouse.

are interested in the library 
and its growth, provides the 
library with some books and 
with various periodicals, in- 
cluding the National Observer 
and the Washington Post . 

The t-r lends hold meetings at 
various times throughout the 
year. They also sponsor lec- 
tures, exhibits, and other re- 
lated activities of interest to 
the members. Last Sunday, Mr. 
0. L. Hobson, a historian for 
the Air Force, gave a lec-

A Plea From "I nsights" WJaaiftfett. 



By Scott Kemerling 

Sigma Tau Delta, a creative 
writing society, has long been 
a tradition at Centenary. In 
the past Sigma Tau Delta has 
sponsored the publication of 
Insights , the campus literary 
magazine. The members of this 
groups would like to publish 
Insights again this year, but 
we can't do it without your 
help. We would like all the 
people of this college to con- 
tribute to Insights . The 
types of material we want 
are poems, short stories, 
essays, plays, book and movie 
reviews, music, and commenta- 
ries. If you have something you 
would like to contribute, give 
it to any Sigma Tau Delta mem- 
ber, or to: 

Dr. Girlinghouse 

English Department 

Campus 

All contributions will be 
carefullly considered. We will 
discuss the material and then ' 
talk with. you about it. Every- 
thing must be submitted by the 
end of this semester. The work 
does not have to be any certain 




style; what we are interested 
in is quality. That is the ba- 
sis on which the work will be 
judged. 

We think Insights is im- 
portant because it gives people 
a chance to have their writing 
published and read. So if you 
want a magazine in which we 
can publish your work, then 
write. If you don't want one, 
then don't write, because if 
we don't have enough material 
for Insights by the end of 
this semester, we'll have to 
forget it. It's up to you. 
Sigma Tau Delta meetings are 
held every other Wednesday at 
4 p. m. in the Student Senate 
Room of the SUB. The next 
meeting is on Oct. 13. Every- 
one is invited to attend. 

12 Hours of Elvis 

The Elvis Presley Story,

and Carl Perkins. The show is 
narrated by Wink Martindale. 

A news release from KIVKH 
("The Friendly Giant") promi- 
ses that present-day KWKH exec- 
utive Frank Page can be heard 
in the first hour of the marathon 
documentary introducing Elvis 
at his first Louisiana Hayride 
performance. The news re- 
lease doesn't mention that El- 
vis, quoted in Rolling Stone , 
responded upon learning of the 
Droject, "What do they want to 
do twelve hours on me for?"

Fest Promoters 
To Be Busted 

A Pointe Coupee Parish 
grand jury last week indicted 
Steve Kapelow and Kenneth Lind, 
promoters of last June's 
Celebration of Life rock fes- 
tival, on charges of theft, ob- 
scenity, and contributing 
to the delinquency of minors. 

The festival, which drew an 
estimated 50,000 young people to 
a 700 -acre farm near McCrea, 
La. , was shut down after four 
days. It was unanimously termed 
a failure by backers, law en- 
forcement officials, and festi- 
val-goers, due to heavy hard 
drug usage, scattered violence, 
and cancellations by many ad- 
vertised rock groups .

October 8, 1971 



the gospel of Sport 



by John 



Centenary, Dallas, Baltimore 



A Tradition Filled Week 



Sports are built largely on 
tradition. On all levels of 
sport, tradition is important. 
This week three traditional events 
dominate the sports scene in this 
area. One has already happened, 
one occurs tomorrow, and the third 
begins tomorrow. 

In Centenary intramural foot- 
ball, no game has quite the luster 
of the Kappa Sig I --Kappa Alpha 
I game. This Tuesday, this year's 
chapter occurred as the Sigs 
kept rolling toward a probable 
perfect regular season record 
with their 18-7 victory. This 
year, the Sigs seem to have every- 
thing necessary to retain the 
championship they won last year. 
With Mark McMurry throwing to a 
bevy of receivers, including Chris 
Carey, Rick Coe, Dave Carleton, 
and Scotter Tindel , the Sig offense 
appears unstoppable. The Sigs al- 
so have unveiled their version 
of the option play which has 
been highly effective. The Sig 
defense has been equally tough 
as they have allowed only 7 
points in 6 games , and even 
those points came on a ques- 
tionable play in Tuesday's 
game. Even though I think the 
Sigs will probably win it all 
this year, this traditional ri- 
valry may not be over for the year 
as the KA's have a good chance 
to make the playoffs and a pos- 
sible rematch with the Sigs. 

On the intercollegiate foot- 
ball scene few games have the 
tradition of the Texas -Oklahoma 



game in Dallas to be played to- 
morrow. This year the tradi- 
tion is enhanced as both teams 
are national powers with 3-0 
records. So far this season, 
both have had awesome offensive 
attacks and good defensive per- 
formances . The Sooners seem to 
have the edge on offense, but the 
Longhoms have had a stronger de- 
fense so far. The series has 
been dominated the past few 
years by Texas , but the Friday 
night before the game has al- 
ways made a trip to the game 
worthwhile even if the games 
haven't been too close. This 
year, as usual, many Centenary 
students are going and for a 
change the game should be as 
exciting as the activities down- 
town Friday night. • Anyway, I 
see the game as a toss-up with 
possibly a slight edge to OU 
because of injuries to Longhorns, 
Eddie Phillips and Jim Moore. 

Probably the greatest tradi- 
tion in all of sport is the World 
Series which begins tomorrow in 
Baltimore. It shapes up as a 
good series with the Orioles pit- 
ted against the Pittsburg Pirates. 
The Orioles seem to have superi- 
or pitching and fielding and at 
least equal hitting to gq along 
with their Series experience 
which should combine. to give 
the Orioles their second con- 
secutive championship. Interes- 
ted viewers can see all the Series 
action beginning tomorrow on 
Channel 1Z in the Shreveport area.

CADDO POLICE JURY 
District 9, # 245 



I think its time we had not 
only new, but young faces on 
the Caddo Parish Police Jury. 
People who want to Bee our Par- 
ish grow, and help make it a 
better place for our children to 
grow in. 

The Police Jury makes decis- 
ion: which will affect your 
family and mine for years to 
come. For this reason I will 
establish a polling plan in which 
the citizens of my district -can 
contact me personally concern- 
ing matters facing the jury. 

I want to stop the growing 
number of youth from leaving 
our Parish. These are the back- 
bone of our community and I 
will do everything in my power 
to create better job opportuni- 
ties, and better harmony with 
their elected officials. 

When elected. T will be a full- 
time representative of the peo- 
ple. I want my campaign to be 
a people campaign and I will 
greatly appreciate your help and 
vote to make OUR campaign a 
success.

Referundum data incomplete 



By Pam Sargent 
Results of Tuesday's 
SGA referendum have been tenta- 
tively compiled by members of 
the Executive Council. The full 
report of results will not be 
ready for a few weeks but the 
following are capsulized versions 
of the responses to the ques- 
tions. 

With regards to the drink- 
ing proposal , three times as 
many (92) students felt that 
drinking should be allowed on 
campus. This was favored over 
leaving the situation as it 
is presently, or merely lessen- 
ing the punishment for viola- 
tions. 

If this referendum would 
people a co-ed dorm, then one 
floor of Hardin would be dras- 
tically changed now. Seventy 
people signified they would 
like to live in a co-ed situ- 
ation; 1 felt the present 
plan was too liberal; and 18, 
too conservative. 

In a nearly 2 to 1 showing, 
students indicated that they 
did not understand the struc- 
ture of the SGA. Even after 
digesting the illuminating diag- 
ram, as many students still re- 
ported they didn't understand 
the accomplishments of the 
various segments of the SGA as 
those who praised or condemned. 

Opinion was almost evenly 
divided on library hours and 
Uaynes gym. Student approval 
seemed to be more conclusively 
given for field trips and ac- 
tivities clubs, as well as flu 
shots, campus clean-up, and 



increasing the student activi- 
ties fee. 

We hope to receive a full 
report for the next issue. 

Bogucki gets 
secretary slot 

Mike Griffin, Jeff Hendricks, 
and Cindy Yeast were elected to

One hundred sixteen freshmen 
and 115 upperclassmen voted. 

According to Elections Com- 
mittee rules, "any person desi- 
ring to contest an election must 
do so to the First Vice President 
(Barry Fulton) or to the chairman 
of the Elections Committee (Sher- 
ry Lewis) within ten days after 
the election. Reasons must be 
stated, and in the event that 
these reasons are found sound by 
a two -thirds vote of the Elections 
Committee, subject to approval 
of the Senate, measures will be 
tak~n to correct the situation."

As the Conglomerate went 
to press , candidates Speedy Long 
and David Treen were scheduled 
to speak (yesterday) in the SUB. 
A full report will be printed 
next week. 

Comedian-hatchetman Fuggy 
Moity, also a candidate for 
Louisiana's highest office, 
cancelled his Tuesday engagement 
here due to pressing legal matters 
in Lafayette. 

Coming this Tuesday, Oct. 19:

Also this Tuesday, P.J.Mills, 

candidate for Lt. Governor, will 

be on campus at 1 PM to visit 

with students in the cafeteria 

and SUB. 

David Chandler, Life 's man 

in Pelican State politics, has 

moved his campus appearance date 

to next Thursday, Oct. 21. 

Taddy Aycock will be in Shreve- 
port next week for the State Fair 
opening, at which time the stu- 
dent coalition will attempt to 
persuade his managers to schedule 
him for an appearance here. (The 
Aycock people have already said 
"No" once.) 

A news release sent to the 
Conglomerate this week by Aycock 
headquarters announces the ap- 
pointment of Michael Lafleur of 
Morgan City to head SNAP- -Students 
for Aycocks Policies (watch that 
acronym). Lafleur, the release 
says , was the recipient of the

CONGLOMERATE 



Miller outlines problems, 
proposals in open letter 



I have two veiy general but 
very important goals for this 
year. First, I plan to identi- 
fy as accurately as possible the 
needs of the members of the Cen- 
tenary College community, par- 
ticularly the needs of the stu- 
dents. Second, I plan to take 
some definite, positive steps 
to meet these needs. Here is 
what has been accomplished thus 
far in relation to both of 
these goals. 

During my brief tenure here 
at Centenary I have had the op- 
portunity to talk with several 
administrators, faculty members, 
and students. From the content 
of these conversations I have 
distilled many needs. Several 
are included in the list which 
follows: 

1. Students do not have e- 
nough long and short term par- 
ticipative activities. 

2. Students do not have e- 
nough opportunities to partici- 
pate in decision making. 

3. Students do not have e- 
nough on-campus entertainment. 

4. Students do not have 
enough opportunities to crea- 
tively express their artis- 
tic and musical talents. 

5. Students do not have 
an attractive on-campus focal 
point for informal contacts. 

6. Commuting students do 
not have an attractive place 
to gather. 

7. Students do not have e- 
nough opportunities for personal 
accomplishment. 

8. Students, particularly 
independents, do not have e- 
nough opportunities for cooper- 
ative effort and achievement. 

9. Students do not have 
enough opportunities for informal 
student/ faculty contact. 

Now for the second part: 
How do we meet these needs? 
I'm sure there are a variety 
of alternatives* which could 
easily satisfy each of these 
needs individually. But I 
believe we can solve many of 
them by pursuing only one alter- 
native. That alternative is 
to renovate the Student Union 
Building. 

Many of you have had a chance 
to either hear or read of my* 
ideas for the SUB. I presen- 
ted these only to whet your ap- 
oetite; to show you what could 
be done. I am convinced that 
the ideas to be generated by 
an enthusiastic and creative 
group of students could far sur- 
pass my spur-of-the-moment 
thinking . 

In order to renovate the SUB, 
I propose we bring together a 



group of students to form a 
steering committee. It will be 
the responsibility of this com- 
mittee to serve not only as the 
guiding force in the project 
but also as a clearing house 
for all ideas. I believe the 
membership of this committee 
should include: 

- 1. A Greek social order mem- 
ber. 

2. An independent. 

3. An off-campus resident. 

4. An on-campus resident. 

5. An art student. 

6. A student proficient in 
theatrical production set de- 
sign. 



7. A business major emphasi- 
zing marketing. 

In addition, there are at least 
four characteristics which each 
of these committee members should 
possess : 

1. unbounded enthusiasm for 
this project. 

.2. The. belief that he and -his . 
fellow students can both design 
and construct the project. 

3. The ability to devote 
approximately four (4) hours 
per week to the project. 

4. The ability to enlist 
the cooperation of others to 
help in the project .

Weekly Mail 



Dear Editor: 

I was glad to see a Greek 
page in last week's Conglomerate . 
I was unpleasantly surprised to 
see that Theta Chi must not be a 
recognized Greek organization on 
this campus. I would like to ad- 
vise you that Theta Chi is a 
nationally recognized fraternity 
and that that national frater- 
nity does recognize us as one 
of their number. In years past 
we have had to struggle for 
actual existence. Now we are 
strong enough to rival the other 
three fraternities on the campus 
and we don't plan to be put down 
by anyone, including the news- 
paper. 

I have heard, through several 
people, that our article will 
be included in next week's paper 
since there wasn't enough room 
last week. That's fine, but 
why are we forced to be the odd 
man out? I have seen this happen 
to us many times in the past. 
Thanks to publicity like this, few 
students realize that Theta Chi 
is a Greek social organization. 

We feel strongly about this 
situation and we would like to 
see the Conglomerate make some 
apology to the fraternity system 
and student body. 

At the same time your sports 
editor might like to make a 
retraction also. Theta Chi was 
the first football team to score 
against Kappa Sigma, not, as you 
printed, Kappa Alpha. Though 
we aren't one of the top-ranked 
teams you ought to at least get 
your news accurate. 

Thank you, 
Kenneth Curry

College, Shreveport, Louisiana, 71104. Views presented are those 
of the staff and contributors and do not necessarily reflect the 
administrative policies of Centenary College. 



To the Editor: 

As members of the Student 
Senate, we are always anxious 
to receive any constructive cri- 
ticisms -offered to us by members 
of the student body and faculty 
which would help us better meet 
the needs of Centenary College. 
However, we feel that if any 
medium carrying the importance 
of a campus newspaper takes 
upon itself the responsibility 
of offering criticism, it should 
first investigate the founda- 
tions upon which the criticism 
is based. It seems that it 
should be very embarrassing for 
the Conglomerate to have shown 
such ignorance in last week's 
issue regarding the functions of 
the Student Senate in the over- 
all structure of the Student 
Government Association. We cer- 
tainly never felt that it would 
be necessary to remind the edi- 
tors of the Conglomerate that 
the new SGA Constitution strict- 
ly divides the powers of the SGA 
among three branches: The Exe- 
cutive, the Legislative, and 
the Judicial. We recognize the 
problem of lack of publicity 
about campus affairs, but the 
authority to promote this pub- 
licity does not lie with the 
Senate- -our hands are tied by 
the Constitution's division of 
powers . This duty has been 
delegated to a committee headed 
by the Secretary of the SGA, 
and constitutionally we have no 
right to intervene. 

We especially would like to 
ask the Conglomerate where its 
reporter was when the Senate 
discussed bi-monthly meetings. 
Contrary to the idea presented 
in the editorial column of the 
Conglomerate , this change was 
not made because there was not 
enough to do, but rather because 
there was "quite a lot to do." 
By meeting only twice a month 
we are giving our committees 
more time to function properly, 
thereby involving more students 
in our activities. Thus, we 
felt that one more lengthy and 
well organized bi-monthly meet- 
ing would be more effective than 
a shorter meeting once a week. 

Finally, we would like to 
ask the Conglomerate where it 
got the idea that HI lender was 
speaking to raise money as a 
Student Senate project. This 
bit of information was cer- 
tainly news to the Senate, since 
it was announced to us that

Student 

Activities 
Committee 

by Suzanne Mason 
When changes are brought 
about in Centenary student gov 
emm^nt, campus discipline, stu 
dent-faculty relationships, liqi 
or regulations, etc., the place 
they're supposed to begin is tin 
Student Activities Committee. 
Under the leadership of Robert 
Ed Taylor, the committee meets 
every first and third Tuesday 
from 10:40-11:30 in the Smith 
Building. 

The Student Activities Com- 
mittee does require that all 
material to be presented before 
the committee be written, signed 
and brought to Robert Ed Taylor 
one week before each meeting. 
Regular meetings are open to any 
one with participation privi- 
leges at the discretion of the 
chairman. 

The committee is composed 
of five faculty members and five 
student members, appointed by 
President Allen. Serving as 
advisors to the committee are 
Dean Rawlinson and Dean Miller 

In the Oct. 5 meeting, Robert 
Ed Taylor presided and Chris 
Blanchard was elected secretary. 

Guidelines for Who's Who 
nominees were announced- - 
that a nominee be a junior or 
senior and show qualities of 
leadership on campus. Robert 
Ed Taylor, speaking for the com- 
mittee, encouraged all students 
to make nominations for Who's 
Who, putting names into the box 
in the SUB Post Office lobby 
before next Tuesday, Oct. 19. 
Faculty representative Mr. 
Charles Vetter motioned that 
the student committee members 
be allowed to vote for nominees 
of Who's Who and the Ellis II. 
Brown Leadership Award. The 
motion passed, and the meeting 
adjourned. 



was an Executive Council pro- 
ject to raise money for campus 
beautification. 

In closing we would like to 
stress again both our desire 
and need for constructive cri- 
ticism. We only suggest that 
before any complaint is made, 
it should first be verified as 
to its relevance and validity. 
We the Senate are working hard 
to make this year a good one, 
and we need all the help we 
can get, but please realize 
that in many instances we are 
powerless. 

The Student Senate 

Dear Editor: 

How many times have we Sena- 
tors heard and read that the 
Student Senate never does any- 
thing- -that the Senate is full 
of bull! Yes, friends, we know 
how you feel about us , and we 
realize that you have justifica- 
tions in many of your gripes. 
But there are some things ovej- 
which we have no authority. 
The Student Senate has three 
committees under the SGA con- 
stitution- -Elections , Academic 
Affairs, and Social Affairs. 
The other student committees, 
such as Publicity, Forums, En- 
tertainment, SUB, Fiscal, and 
Student Recruiting, are under 
the jurisdiction of the Exe- 
cutive Council of the Student 
Government Association. We 
have no control over these com- 
mittees. Yet the Student Senate 
still gets blamed because cer- 
tain things aren't publicized.

Here is how the committee 
will function m actual prac- 
tice. One of the first tasks 
to be accomplished will be to 
jctermine the theme. The com- 
mittee will meet and discuss 
the DOSSible alternatives. Once 
have identified a few which 
they believe to be likely pros- 

,, a public hearing will 
be called to present them. At 
the public meeting the commit- 
tee's choices will be discussed, 
and hopefully, other choices 
will be added by other students 
in attendance. A list of all 
the possible choices will then 
be prepared and will be voted 
on by the entire student body. 
The committee will then move to 
the next task and proceed in the 
same manner. 

On several occasions throughout 
both the planning and the construc- 
tion phases it will be necessary 
to mobilize and supervise groups 
of students of varying sizes. This 
responsibility will also fall 
to the steering committee and/ 
or one of its members. 

At various times expert helD 
will be required. I have con- 
tacted faculty members arid ad- 
ministrators by memo and have 
asked that they be willing to 
lend a hand when the need aris- 
es. It is my desire that this 
project become one in which stu- 
dents are given the opportu- 
nity to lead and in which every- 
one in the campus conmunity par- 
ticipates, not just a few. 

0. K., what's the first step? 
Let's get a steering committee 
together and get started: I 
would like those of you who are 
interested in serving on the 
steering committee and who feel 
you meet the qualifications lis- 
ted earlier to pick up a personal 
data sheet from your Faculty 
Resident, Housemother, or from 
my office in Hamilton Hall. Fill 
out this sheet at your earliest 
convenience and return it to my 
office no later than Wednesday 
noon, Oct. 20. I will be in 
touch with you personally very 
soon thereafter. 

Remember this: The steering 
committee serves solely as an 
administrative body. It is res- 
ponsible for coordination of ide- 
as and effort. You need not be 
a member of the committee in or- 
der to participate fully in the 
SUB project.

because there is little enter-

are not recruiting enough stu- 
dents each year, because there 
is nothing to do in the SUB, 
and the list goes on and on. 
But, students soon forget some 
of the actions taken by the Sen- 
ate and its coimiittees, such as 
when the Senate realized the 
need for both cafeterias to be 
opened, or how our Social Af- 
fairs Committee is in the pro- 
cess of proposing more libera- 
lized rules, such as non-com- 
pulsorv coats and ties for Yon- 
copm pictures. Sure these

Dear Editor: 

It seems that Shreveport's 
"major-general" of the plastic 
arts is, as is the case with the 
rest of the city's artworldlin- 
ness, left up to our apparently 
willing and interested local 
politicians. The opening of a 
new and, what I consider to be, 
exciting exhibit of artist Alvin 
Sella's paintings and construc- 
tions Friday, Oct. 1 at the Barn- 
well Arts Center suffered a pre- 
mature closing. It was in the 
Tuesday, Oct. 5 edition of the 
Shrevcport Times that I read a 
brief report that members of the 
Barnwell's art committee "looked 
askance" at some of the artist's 
work during the show's preview. 
Seems the problem had to do with 
the old "Is it art or pornography?" 
debate. The obviously confused 
committee members felt the ap- 
parent need to call in an ex- 
pert on art and morality, Al 
Q. Hughs, asst. to Mayor Cal- 
houn Allen Jr. to help decide 
the course of action. Action 
taken consisted of removing 
two of the more "questionable" 
works of art from the exhibit, 
plus all the exhibition cata- 
logues containing titles of all 
the works, (I can only guess 
that the titles must be lewd in 
character.) In response to the 
actions of our overseers of art 
experience, the artist, a pro- 
fessor at the University of 
Alabama, revealed a decision to 
dismantle his show Sat., Oct. 9, 
one week early. 

I emphathize with Mr. Sella, 
being a painter myself; I also 
feel it necessary to hold the 
reins of my expression and would 
similarly close a show if such 
judgements and action were 
passed on my work. I feel this 
type of dictatorial domination 
over Shreveport's art is the kind 
Of misfortune that hampers any 
hope of awareness of art through 






experience- -the only road to 
awareness is experience. The 
i i it us involved in this particu- 
lar situation are putting them- 
selves in the dangerous posi- 
tion of "art doctors" i.e. 
they are prescribing the art 
available to us. A critic of art, 
it seems to me, must be knowledg- 
able and, in fact, immersed in 
the world of art, knowing ill 
the attitudes and current events 
in order to develop what Lucy 
Lippard, a noted art critic and 
writer, calls "a sense of fact." 
I feel safe in saying the commit- 
tee and the asst. to the mayor 
viewed Sella's work with a pre- 
conception as to what is ele- 
mental and acceptable in art. 
Their judgement was formed be- 
fore coming in contact with 
the art itself, and, therefore, 
had little to do with perception 
and experience and all to do 
with legislating art. My own 
experience of the artist's work 
found no broken laws, but then I 
cannot cite the laws to be broken. 

I can't help but wonder where 
Shreveport and the arts are headed 
if this is the usual procedure. 
It seems to me that Centenary Col- 
lege and the other schools in the 
area could be instrumental in help- 
ing to make all the art forms 
available to the city. Not only 
should there be the fine theater 
and choral groups --art in other 
forms should be given emphasis. 
One case in point is the complete 
lack of some kind of art in film 
society. A group that could 
provide films of a varied and 
higher caliber than those of the 
commercial Hollywood class. If 
the school as an institution is 
not providing the availability 
then students themselves (our- 
selves) should take the respon- 
sibility, if for no one else's, 
then for our own awareness.

Raising the Activities Fee,

Forums speaker 
exposed!! 



That mystery man on the 
front page of last week's Con - 
glomerate is Centenary's next 
Forums speaker. Bill Rushton, 
Managing Editor of the New Or- 
leans Vieux Carre Courier and 
founder of the Tu lane Libe ra - 
tion Front, will speak at 8 p. m. 
Monday night, Oct. 18, in the 
SUB. His topic will be "Un- 
dercoast: The Emergence Of A 
New South." 

Rushton is president and co- 
founder of the Abba Foundation, 
a non-profit "hip-capitalism" 
group which operates a community 
flea market, youth hostel, sewing 
co-op, job co-on, cof feehoose , 
and crafts ^community center in 
the New Orleans French Quarter. 
A graduate of the Tuiane School 
of Architecture (where he was 
a National Merit Scholar, Who's 
Who member, Hullabaloo associate 
editor, Sophia literary magazine 
editor) , Rushton helped organize 
the Metro-Link Community Design 
Center, which gives architectural 
and planning assistance to low 
income neighborhoods. 

His articles on architec- 
ture, environment, counter-culture 
and the "Undercoast" have appeared 
in the Courier , New Orleans Maga - 
zine , Rolling Stone , and other 
magazines. 

In his Forums address, Rushton 
will analyze the new "hip" south 
through its music, its archi- 
tecture, its media, and its philo- 
sophies , assessing the cultural 
impact of leisure planning (As- 
trodome, Superdome, etc.) 

All students are urged to 
attend, Monday at 8 p. m. in 
the SUB. Other Forums speakers 
this semester are Pierre Salinger 
and Crace Thorpe.

Slides missing 

Art Department chairman Willard 
Cooner reported that two trays 
of slides have disappeared 
from the study room in Jackson 
Hall. The slides, he said, are 
of art and artifacts of several 
ancient civilizations including 
the Egyptian, Persian, Mesopo- 
tamian, Assyrian and Babylonian. 
The loss of the slides will affect 
the courses in art history present- 
ly in session since many of the 
periods covered by the slides 
have not been covered in the 
classes. 

Cooper also noted that Cen- 
tenary is one of the very few 
schools which allow free ac- 
cess to the slides for study 
purposes, and that until now, 
there have been very few losses. 
He urged anyone knowing of the 
slides or their whereabouts 
to contact a member of the Art 
Department, or, if possible, 
to return the slides to the 
study room.

work Saturday 

by Tommy Guerin 
The Volunteer Service Com- 
mittee will hold a workday at the 
Park this Saturday, Oct. 16. 
It will start at 8:30 a. m. and 
will last till 3:00 p. m. with 
a break for lunch. It is ad- 
vised that all participants 
wear their work clothes and, if 
possible, some gloves. The Park 
is located at the East end of 
Wilkinson Street (behind the 
frat houses) . 

The Park Project was started 
some three or four years ago 
when a study, contracted by 
Dr. W. F. Pledger, determined 
that there were not adequate 
recreational facilities for the 
younger children in the area to 
the north-northeast of the cam- 
pus. The College was talked 
into donating a plot of land 
in the area with the under- 
standing that the students 
were to develop it. Various 
money-making activities were 
undertaken last year and actual 
work was begun to the extent 
that, by the end of the spring 
semester, the lot was fairly 
well cleared and a section was 
bulldozed into a relatively 
level area on which, according to 
plans, a basketball court will 
be constructed. Nature took its 
course over the summer, and the 
weeds must be cut down again. 
Other activities planned for 
this Saturday include the con- 
struction of a swing set from 
utility poles and the removal 
of several piles of trash.

Generally, most deans of 
students are involved in discip- 
line, responsible for student 
government, and instrumental 
in procuring student partici- 
pation. George E. Miller, how- 
ever, concentrates mainly on 
initiating procedures on campus 
which will involve students in 
extracurricular activities. 
This idea covers a broad area 
so he has chosen to delegate 
some of his power and responsi- 
bility. His personnel include 
Steve Holt, director of student 
services , faculty residents of 
men's dorms. He meets with the 
first two, the housemothers, and 
Dean Rawlinson every Monday after- 
noon at 1:00. The resident as- 
sistances, both men and women 
have an orientation meeting 
with Dr. Miller, and the-men 
will be having regular meetings 
with him. Faculty residents 
are responsible for hiring their 
own resident assistants, but 
they listen to suggestions 
from the old R. A. 's. 

As far as an advisor to groups -- 
his position includes an advisor 
to student activities committee, 
an informal advisory capacity 
for IFC, and an interested 
observer and resource person 
for the student senate. His 
daily activities are corres- 
pondence, and appointments. The 
latter consumes much of his time 
as he attempts to get information 
from a random selection of stu- 
dents. He will attend a work- 
shop in Atlanta, Ga., for the 
purpose of professional improve- 
ment. The workshop will concen- 
trate ->n the counseling role. 
He delegates power. Dean Raw- 
linson, considered by Dr. Miller 
as his peer rather than employee, 
is his delegate to the women on 
campus. 

When asked her duties, Dean 
Shirley Rawlinson answered, "I 
am here to help students who 
need help, given the opportunity; 
to guide them in such a way that 
they can function to their fullest 
capacity, while they are at Cen- 
tenary." Her more tangible du- 
ties include anything that has to 
do with the women's resident hall^. 



Mostly she makus certain that the 
physical plant functions proper- 
ly. Her interests are not con- 
fined to the buildings them- 
selves, however, for she is 
involved in various. othr seg- 
ments of the college community. 

This involvement is either 
direct or indirect. The latter 
method is used when she serves 
in the capacity of an advisor to 
various groups, which are: the 
student activities committee, 
women's student government as- 
sociation, panhellenic, maroon 
jackets, and women's judicial 
board. Concerning her position ■ 
with the last group she is "get- 
ting out of it" as soon as she 
can. The housemothers have at 
least two conversations a day 
with Dean Rawlinson and after 
the personnel staff meeting held 
on Monday under the direction 
of Dean Miller, she meets with 
all three of the housemothers , 
in a group. Meetings with the 
resident assistances has no set 
date, but she always tries to 
meet with them periodically. 
Dean Rawlinson also accepts 
applications, interviews appli- 
cants, and hires the resident as- 
sistants. Other activities 
that occupy her time are numer- 
ous. 

Appointments with students to 
discuss various aspects of campus 
life fill most of her office time. 
She also "tries to participate 
in the social activities of all 
organizations on campus, those 
to which I am invited." Cor- 
respondence is varied. Quest ion - 
aires from agencies and other 
schools ; letters from students 
and alumni, and rush applica- 
tions are just some of the types. 
Also the Dames club, which is com- 
posed of women faculty members 
wives of faculty members , and 
other women directly associated 
with the college, has all of its 
correspondence through this of- 
fice. In regard to the rumor 
of her leaving the position of 
Dean of Women--she is "not at 
this particular moment" considc 
ing the idea. After all, it is 
a woman's prerogative to change 
her mind. 



And Kudos to David Beaird 



Former Centenary student Da- 
vid Beaird was honored as the Most 
Promising Player of the season in 
the Joseph Jefferson Awards Cere- 
mony this Dast Monday in Chicago. 

Beaird was honored for his 
t professional role, that of 
Eugene Grant in "Look Homeward, 
'Angel" at the Ravinia Park Mur- 
Theatre in Augu- 

The award carries with it a 
$500.00 cash prize and is the 
only "Jeff" award to do so. His

"Look Homeward, Angel" to be 



honored at the ceremony, deorge 
Keathley, who directed the show, 
was named best director for his 
work on another Chicago produc- 
tion. 

Mule at Centenary, Beaird 
was a member of the Rivertown

though it was promoted as an "all- 
purpose" hard-to-damage floor by 
the Tartan manufacturer, 3M, Coach 
Orvis Sigler said in a phone in- 
terview, "We don't feel that 
we've got the proper finish on 
it . . . that's my own feeling." 
He has called in the 3M people for 
aid in maintenance. 

The concert goers left be- 
hind bad scuff marks, Coca Cola, 
and other soda pop residue over 
the entire surface, the worst- 
hit area being around the stage. 
"It was filthy," Sigler said. 
"I don't want to overdo it, 
but really, it was the worst 
we've had." 

Other attacks on the floor 
have resulted from Centenary 
and Byrd graduations, the Metho- 
dist Conference, boxing matches, 
and orientation. 



Dormitory rules 
in mass profusion 

By Barbara Robbins 

Girls living in dorms have 
many rules and regulations to 
contend with. Often, though, 
boys who are dating these girls 
get them into trouble without 
realizing it. Boys are not al- 
lowed on the dorm porch after 
the dorm closes. This is 10:30 
week-nights and 1:00 a. m. Fri- 
day and Saturday nights. Boys 
are not allowed in the dorm be- 
fore 11:00 a. m. any day except 
Sunday . 

If a boy visits a girl during 
"open dorm," two till five Satur- 
day and Sunday, he must abide by 
the rules of the dorm. If he 
makes too much noise, the girl 
must take all penalties. 

Any of the above can get a 
girl a major. The dorms run on 
the major-minor system. Five 
minors or three majors equal 
a "campus." If a girl is "cam- 
pused," she may receive no visi- 
tors from eight Friday night un- 
til eight Saturday. If anyone 
other than a suitemate is found 
in her room, the girl will be 
"campused" again. 

A girl can receive a major 
for numerous reasons: shades 
open after dark; violating a 
"do not disturb" sign; forgetting 
to put the date or time on a 
visitation card; using the back 
door after 6:30 p. m. ; failure 
to sign back in when entering 
the dorm after hours; failure 
to attend dorm meetings; and 
running in the halls.

to the interim program 



This is the second article 
in the unofficial Interim in- 
vestigation series.

neology 1-99 

Subsurface Geological Inves - 
tigat ions^ This course will be 
a sfidy of Ark-La-Tex formations. 
Dr. Nolan Shaw's aim is to map, 
describe, and interpret the for- 
mations in terms of past environ- 
ment and the fossils and paleoge- 
ography. All materials will he 
furnished by the school . Most 
of the course will be laboratory 
work using present processes 
to unravel the oast. Geology 
101-102 is a prerequisite. 

• cation 1-99 

Environmental Problems and 
Solui ions . This~ course offers 
credit in business, biology, and 
chemistry. It will try to exa- 
mine the problems concerning to- 
day's environment and propose 
solutions that might heln ease 
the problems. There are no pre- 
requisites. Anyone interested in 
this course should contact Dr. 
Hanson. 

Foreign Languages 1-99 

Romance Philology . This course 
will be offered for half credit • 
, with the Latin Vulgate Bible . A 
student may take either or both. 
The only prerequisite to Dr. Beck's 
course is one year of any ro- 
mance language. The course will 
attempt to tie together all the 
languages and show how they are 
related. No textbook will be 
used. 

Foreign Languages 1-99 

Latin Vulgate Bible . This 
course will be offered for half 
credit with Romance Philology . 
Mrs. Curl in 's course will examine 
the St. Jerome version of the 
Bible . There are no prerequi- 
sites for this course but Latin 
would be helpful. The only text- 
book used will be the Bible . 

Foreign Languages 1-99 

Introduction to Linguistics . 
This course will show how sounds 
develop into words, and how words 
travel from language to language. 
Mr. Johnson Watts' course has 
no prerequisite. No textbook will 
be used so there will be no ex- 
tra expense. The course hopes 
to cover an impressive list of 
word backgrounds . 

Music 1-99 

Applied Music . This interim 
program, designed primarily for 
: rousic majors, will involve in- 
tensive private lessons in the 
student's particular area of in- 
terest ("voice, piano, etc.). The 
course is open only to music ma- 
jors; however, non -music majors 
may enroll with the approval of 
the music department. Anyone 
desiring further information 
about the course should talk to 
fir- Carroll. 

Music 1-99 

The Elements of Music . Dr. 
Carrol ), head of the music de- 



partment, is planning the course 
to be an "intensive survey of those 
ingredients which make up musi- 
cal composition." This will 
cover the study of pitched materi- 
al, the study of the components 
of pitch, rhythm, timbre, and no- 
tation. The students will hope- 
fully acquire the basic keyboard 
skills, and there will be prac- 
tical applications of all work 
covered. The course is open to 
everyone except music majors. 
Dr. Carroll asks only that pros- 
pective students be interested in 
and curious about music. 

Government 1-99 

Latin American Study Seminar 
("Mexico) . Students who take this 
ill have a chance to see 
a lot of Mexico for not a lot of 
money. Dr. Viva Rainey will be 
taking the class to Cuernavaca, 
Mexico, during interim. There, 
the students will enroll at the 
International Cultural Center. 
The cost of the seminar, which is 
mandatory, is $55. Other courses 
are $30 per course. Dr. Rainey 
wants everyone to take at least 
one more course, and they m 
choose to take more than one. 
Living expenses, excluding 
food, will run about $60. Stu- 
dents may eat their meals either 
on or off campus. During this 
time Dr. Rainey will take the 
class to Mexico City (about 50 
Mi.) and to surrounding areas 
to see examples of the Indian, 
Colonial, and Modem cultures 
of Mexico. One weekend Dr. 
Rainev will let the students 
do and go wherever they want. 
After returning to Shreveport , 
the class will write and turn in 
papers about the trip. People who participant . 
want to take this course do not 
need to know any Spanish. Anyone 
who would like more information 
should see Dr. Rainey. 




Tight quarters 
in the offing 

Do you want to stand in line 
to get your food again? The 
front cafeteria is in desperate 
need of more volunteers. The 
work is easy, and it will mean 
the di f ference between standing 
in line and actual ly cat inc. 
Let's work together to keep our 
front cafeteria open.' If you 
can help, call 5504 or 5515.

Red China policy 

Ed. Note: Author Jeff Daiell, 
member of Young Americans for 
Freedom, attended the below- 
described demonstration as a 



Mathematics 1-99 
History of Mathematics. 



Mrs. 



Self will be teaching a course 
that will be concerned mainly 
with the basic concepts of mathe- 
matics. As far as history, the 
class will start studying about 
the mathematics at the beginning 
of recorded history. The course 
is designed to provide the stu- 
dent with an overall elementary 
picture of mathematics. 

Mrs. Self said that some 
things the class would study are 
the historical devleopment of 
algebra and of trigonometric 
functions, and early number sys- 
tems such as those of the Maya 
Indians and the Greeks. The 
class is open to anyone who 
has had some type of math back- 
ground. 

Mathematics 1-99 

Mathematical Games. Accor- 



"Remember Tibet!" was one of 
the signs present at a demon- 
stration held last Saturday in 
front of the downtown post office 
by the Shreveport Community Chap- 
ter of Young Americans for Free- 
dom, America's largest Conserva- 
tive youth organization (65,000 
members) . 

Shreveport Y. A. F. was ex- 
pressing displeasure with Presi- 
dent Nixon's recent overtures to 
Peiping, a government Y. A. F. 
describes as "the most criminal 
in history." 

After marching with signs, 
such as the one above and "J/oin 
Nixon's Mickey Mao Club," Dave 
Theroux, Chapter Chairman, 
addressed the bystanders and ex- 
plained the purpose of the rally. 
Y. A. F. opposes Nixon's moves, 
he said, because Red China is 
still an aggressor state and 
has shown no sign of becoming 
"peace-loving," as required by 
the United Nations Charter. He 
reminded the audience of Red 
Chinese agression in Korea, 
Tibet, and India, and Peiping 's 
support of aggression in Viet- 
Nam and other areas . 

Following the speech, the 
demonstrators burned a Red 
Chinese flag. Theroux explained 
that they were by no means repu- 
diating China's people, history, 



ding to Mr. Danvers, who will be 
the teacher, this course will be 
an "investigation of unusual and 
entertaining topics of. the type 
presented in the monthly 'Mathe- 
matical Games' articles by Martin 

Gardner in the Scientific American or culture, but merely the bar 
magazine." The only prerequisite baric and oppressive regime now 
for the course is an. interest in in charge of the mainland, 
mathematics. The flag burned, the group 

more interims next meek resumed marching and distributing 

literature explaining their po- 
sition. Anyone interested in 
such literature should call 
me at 5530.

a 



Freeman & Harris 
for a start 



> 



i 



by Pattie Oversireet 

If you're an insatiate 
puzzle solver, an experimenter, 
or simply a victim of that campus 
malady--boredom--try finding 
your way to Freeman § Harris some 
evening. Feeling your way a- 
round the "Bottoms" to Western 
Ave. is no easy job; but, while 
your goal may not be the literal 
pot of gold at the end of the 
rainbow, it's more than worth 

ffort of a little exploring. 

Fortunately, I wasn't dri- 
ving when my companion and I 
set out to brave the menu and 
neighborhood of Freeman § Harris. 
I was too engrossed in watching 
the signs advertising "Cheesebur- 
ger--Soul Food" and saying sim- 
ply, "Do not enter this building 
if not over 21" ("Leaves a lot 
of room for the imagination," 
I remarked to my friend) which 
became more profuse as we 
neared Western Ave. 

I had heard too much about 
the restaurant (The Freeman § 
Harris Cafe, as it is offici- 
ally called) not to be both 
dubious and a little excited 
as we walked in. The building 
itself is nothing impressive, 
but then good things are usu- 
ally the quietest. And Freeman 
6 Harris is definitely a good 
thin^. 

It's difficult to say what 
seizes the attention first -- 
faces or platters of food fair- 
ly tottering under their own 
weight. The faces 991 black, 
showed only a small amount of 
curiosity at the two students 
entering what is usually con- 
sidered alien territory. Tf the 
extraordinary courtesy and casu- 
al warmth of our waitress are 
the normal fare for customers , 
then I can safely say that our 
presence was easily accepted. 
Of course I was too busy gaping 
at the food to notice anything 
less than overt . 

On a newspaper expense ac- 
count (or a student budget) 
prices do matter. And prices at 
Freeman f, Harris are stunted; 
few, other than that for the 
best sirloin, extend over $2.00. 
For $1.55 I was served two 
stuffed crabs, potatoes, a large 
salad, bread and iced tea. The 
portions were anything but 
sparing, and I found myself re- 
gretting that long exposure to 
cafeteria food had ruined my ap- 
Lte. 



Charley Pride 
rfvows in Nashville 



The rafters at the Grand Ole 
°Pry House resounded to wild ap- 
plause Sunday, when Charley Pride 
was choosen Entertainer of the 
Year and Male Vocalist of the Year 
at the fifth annual Country Music 
Association awards. 

Pride, one of country music's 
tew successful black singers (ma- 
ny blacks, Ella Fitzgerald, Taj 
Mahal, Ray Charles, Joe Tex, and 
•C. Smith among others, have per- 
formed country music in their al- 
bums), Was near iy speechless with 
potion as filen Campbell announced 
JjS F.ntertainer of the Year selec- 
tl on to the packed Opry House 
crowd. 

Passing by Chet Atkins, Kitty 
ells, and (yes) Jimmie Davis, 
'ntrv fhisic Association 






Sampling the entire menu 
would have been impossible 
especially for chronic dieters 
like me --but I checked for vari- 
ety and found little about which 
to complain, Choices range from 
true soul food (giblets , 
hock, fried chicken) to sea 
food and steaks. Plus almost 
everything in between. I had 
to stifle a rise of emotion at 
the sight of homemade pies. 

There is no higher recom- 
mendation for any eating es- 
tablishment than to say that 
the food is exceptional and 
plentiful, the prices low, the 
service fast. But Freeman f, 
Harris is more- -a novelty, 
worth visiting if just for the 
sake of watching the two wait- 
resses, one of whom was playing 
the pinball machine when we 
left. One warning: If ele- 
gance is your forte in res- 
taurants, forget it. Freeman 
§ Harris is more suited to 
blue jeans, lean poclcetbooks . . 
and healthy appetites. 



Leprechauns!? 

Need a ceramic leprechaun? 
Or a weddingcake groom? How 
about a pair of dress pants 
for a dollar? Those were some 
of the lowpriced goods offered 
last Sunday at the Swap-O- 
Rama flea market , inside the 
Showtown USA grounds , near the 
airport. 

The drive-in theater serves 
as an open marketplace for 
hundreds of buyers and sellers 
every Sunday from 8 to 4. Sel- 
lers pay two dollars for the 
right to display a carload of 
merchandise (leftovers from 
the last garage sale?) at an 
individual 'red Swap-O-Rama 
booth, while buyers part with 
25<fr simply to' enter and shop. 

It's a no-lose proposition 
for the promoter. Sellers and 
buyers, however, are offered 
no guarantees . 

The list of products 
available last Sunday resembled 
a Salvation Army Store inven- 
tory. Baby chairs, bottles, 
kitchen sinks (honest), lamps, 
camping equipment. At one booth, 
a slick team of camival-style 
operators pushed genuine imi- 
tation antique wall decorators, 
handcrafted in Tyler, Texas. 
One black female entrepreneur, 
further down the line, proud- 
ly counted among her wares an 
old KA pledge paddle. 

The only fee charged mer- 
chandisers is the original two 
dollar display charge. Any 
profit realized is the strict 
concern of the seller and 
Internal Revenue. 



members choose country industry 
great Art Satherly as the newest 
member of the Hall of Fame. Sa- 
therly, originally from England, 
has been responsible for the dis- 
covery of many folk and country 
stars. 

Album of the Year was Ray 
Price's I Won't Mention It Again , 
a smooth styled LP which features 



Stella by daylight 
and a spitz-a-three 



Mr. John Williams of the Cen- 
tenary Faculty has combined his 
interests (and talent) in drama 
and science to add to the cul- 
tured life of Shreveport. Mr. 
Williams is writer and producer 
1 1 urograms offered by the SPAR 
PLANETARIUM At 2820 Pershing 
Boulevard. The planetarium 
features a Spitz A- 3 projector 
that is capable of creating an 
amazing illusion of the night Lme 
sky; along with associated pheno- 
mena. These effects of space 
and time are projected on the 
interior of a hemispherical dome 
that is twenty -four feet in diame- 
ter. 

(The director of the plantetarium 
is Charles 0. Wonley and the 
Superintendent of SPAR is Mel 
McJohn . ) 

Unlike the programs at 
planetariums in other cities, the 
Shreveport shows are all pre i 
corded with great attention to 
script and music. One of the 
well -received summer shows was 
"The Paths of the Sun" which 
was narrated by Mr. Williams with 
musical emphasis by such masters 
as Dvorak and Hoist. "How to Watch 
a Flying Saucer" was narrated by 
Mr. Williams and Mr. Busei. I , 
and proved to be one of the most 
popular of the series. In 
"A Dialogue With Galileo" the au- 
dience was transported back to 
1610. It was narrated by Mr. 
Buseick with Mr. Williams as 
Galileo, and the music was scored 
bv J . Kranre . 




The current program "Moon 
Dreams" will be playing uni i I 
Nov. 21. It covers three phases 
in man's experience ol the moon. 
First are the old ideas about the 
moon from legends and myths , then 
dreams of going there, and con- 
cluding wi tii the ai tn.i i 
journey. The Apollo sequ 
of 'Moon Dream" incorporn 

its from i he ai tua I 
Apollo flight, provided by Tracy 
Kn hiss, a Centenary student working 
ai the p] an I irium on wee! end 
and Sundays.

bol of the King' bi 
the most ambition 
tions. It involves many charai 
ters and has art work by i 
Hunter, made into slides by Mr. 
Williams. The public showtimes 
are on Sundays at two, three, 
and four p. m. During the State 
Fair (Oct. 22-31) there will be 
five shows a day alternal Lng be- 
tween "Moon Dreams" and ' 1 
to Watch a Flying Saucer." The 
admission is $.75 for adults 
and $.25 for youth- -well worth 
it. 





Price's mellow interpretations 
of the title song, penned by Kris 
Kristofferson. Because many 
Country "purists" believe that 
Price leans dangerously close to 
the popular music field in his 
singing, he has been the subject 
of considerable industry contro- 
versy. This award amounted to 
tacit approval of his direction 
by the "in" group. 

"Purists" suffered another 
loss when the phenomenal bluegrass 
group the Osbome Brothers, who 
have been undertaking daring mu- 
sical excursions into other sty- 
lings , won the Vocal Group of the

Dean Rawlinson and Greek women. 

Fraternities 

Because many of the Greeks 
trucked over to Dallas last 
weekend for the Texas -0. U. game, 
there wasn't too much happening 
at the frat houses. However,

the upcoming year. The projects 
now in progress are: selling 
books of tickets for the Shreve- 
port Jaycees as a fund-raising 
project and saving pennies for 
a pledge penny party. The number 
of pennies saved will equal the

Reward 



Since the spring semester, 
the following has been posted on 
Dean Marsh's office door. So 
far, no winner: 

ISTI TSUKHRLHPI LAKSAKAT 
TSHIHOFV INHOMITSI TOMIS; MOMAIS 
FVTSV OPUNAHOYAN IM AFVLSKI 
TOMIS. 

This is an actual quotation, 
in a recognized human language, 
of a statement of an ethical 
nature. The statement, together 
with its translation, is in a 
book in the college library. 

The Dean of the College of- 
fers a prize of $10.00 to the 
first student who can find the 
quotation, identify the lan- 
guage, and produce the trans- 
lation. 

Talent Show 

A talent show composed of 
high school and college age con- 
testants from throughout the state 
will be one of the top attrac- 
tions at the Greater Baton Rouge 

State Fair this year. Centenary 

students are eligible to enter. 

Prizes include a $200.00 
[ cash award to the top winner and 
cash awards to the two runners - 
up. In addition, the talent win- 
ner will be invited to appear on 
a TV broadcast of the Ted Mack 
Amateur Hour. 

The talent show is being spon- 
sored by the Association of 
Louisiana Electric Cooperatives, 
Inc. 

Jim Musser, chairman of the 
talent show event, said winners 
will be selected by Buddy Page, 
Ted Mack's chief talent scout 
for Southern United States , who 
will head a oanel of judges for 
the final auditions at the Fair's 
main auditorium Saturday after- 
noon, Oct. 30. Ten finalists 
will be selected from the 50 or 
so contestants expected to com- 
pete for the top prizes later 
that evening. 

A talent committee will con- 
duct reviews and auditions 
throughout the state of those 
sending in entry blanks to 
participate in the show, Musser 
explained. 

Entry blanks may be obtained 
from Steve Holt's office in the 
SUB or by writing to Invitational 
Talent Committee of the Greater 
Baton Rouge State Fair, P. 0. 
Box 66133, Baton Rouge, La. 
70806. Phone (504) 356-4481. 

Talent show entrants must be 
of high school or college age, 
and talent presentations or 
acts are limited to five minutes. 
Contestants must furnish their 
own accompaniment and special 
effects. 

Musser said other acts may 
be invited to appear on tele- 
vision if the talent scout con- 
siders them to be of high enough 
quality. 

The local show will be pro- 
duced by the Baton Rouge Jay- 
cees. It is one of many enter- 
tainment features of the annual 
state fair which will be held at 
the Fair site--a 60-acre tract at 
the intersection of Airline High- 
way and Florida Blvd. Some 

100 persons attended the I 
last year.

Library need 
suggestions 

By Charles Harrington 

Head Librarian 

The Library invites student 
and faculty recommendations for 
books to be purchased with the 
$5,000 Kellogg Foundation Grant 
awarded to Centenary College to 
buy library resource materials in 
the field of environmental studies 
The Kellogg Library Grant Commit- 
tee, apDointed by President John 
Allen and composed of the Head 
Librarian and several faculty 
members and students, plans to 
spread the use of the Kellogg 
Grant over the next three years. 
The Committee expects to spend 
$2,000 this year and $1,500 in 
each of the next two fiscal years, 
so that funds will be available 
to purchase needed environmental 
materials now as well as to pur- 
chase other unidentified materi- 
als that are still to be published. 
The Committee also plans to dis- 
tribute purchases logically over 
such areas of environmental con- 
cern as conservation and use of 
natural resources, pollution, pop- 
ulation growth, urban problems, 
and natural history. 

Recommendations are needed as 
to what environmental materials 
will be useful. Students and 
faculty should direct their sug- 
gestions for purchase to me. 
Both books and other types of 
library materials may be pur- 
chased. 



Uncle Sam 
wants you 

Make sure you spit -shine 
those boots before marching into 
the SUB, soldier, your future 
Commanding Officer may be watching! 

The next few days will see 
more than usual military acti- 
vity on the Centenary Campus, 
when the Marines and the Air 
Force come calling. 

The II. S. Marine, Corps Officer 
Selection Team will be here today, 
to interview anyone interested 
in the Marine Corps or the Offi- 
cer Training Program. The 
team, to be headed by Major Bob 
Daniels, will be in the SUB 
from 8 a. m. until 4 p. m. 

The Air Force team, which 
will consist of Captain Glenn 
Roberts and TSgt. Harry Reeder, 
will visit the SUB Monday (Oct. 
18) from 10 a. m. until 5 p. m. 
They will be available to speak 
to anyone desiring information 
on the Officer Training School 
program. TSgt. Reeder also 
points out that "the Air Force 
offers a wide variety of career 
options with unlimited travel 
opportunities to young ladies 
'iey graduate from college." 
tary service, we hasten 
to assure you, can't really be 
as bad as it's rumored. After 
all, the editor, features edi- 
tor, and news editor of the Con - 
glomerate are all ex-military, 
and look where it's got them.' 



Dear Thad 

This letter to Dean Marsh 
was published last week in the 
faculty newsletter: 

Are you aware of the follow- 
ing regulation, which appears 
on page 70 of the current edi- 
tion of GENTLEMANLY SPEAKING, 
among an enumeration of "speci- 
fic areas of misconduct as de- 
termined by the Committee on 
Student Activities for which 
students are subject to discip- 
linary action"? 

"7. Theft of, damage to, or 
illegal possession of any prop- 
erty, or of a member of the 
College community, or of any 
campus visitor." 

This is a considerable gen- 
eralization of the regulation 
of last year, which included, 
"... property of the Col- 
lege, ..." I am not sure the 
generalization is warranted; for 
example, theft of some members 
of the College community might 
actaally be beneficial r - Ille- 
gal possession of visitors, of 
course, should be strongly dis- 
couraged . 

Sincerely, 

Rufus F. Walker, Jr.

The care and feeding of bicycles 



By Arijn Tracy /AFS 

Keeping your bike clean is 
a mundane but essential part of 
bicycle care. If you go out in 
the rain, wipe the bike off when 
you get home, and check the chain 
and gears later for rust. Use 
penetrating oil to remove 
rust as soon as possible. Keep 
oil, gas and any other solvent 
away from tires and brake blocks. 
If you ride in dusty areas, 
clean off the dust, paying at- 
tention, always, to moving 
parts. 

Your chain deserves all the 
love you can give it. On a 
good bike, especially with de- 
mi IT ours (gears at the rear 
axle which shift the chain from 
sprocket wheel to sprocket 
wheel ) , soak the chain in 
Kerosene and oil it about 
every two weeks if you use the 
bike regularly. Cheaper bikes 
can get by with less, only if 
you love them less . Bikes that 
don't have derail leurs have a 
special link in the chain that 
comes apart easily for chain re- 
moval; this can be found easily 
enough simply by looking for 
the one that's different from 
the rest. 

All you have to know about 
lubrication is that there are 
a few places not to use oil. 
Cables should be lubed with a 
light grease, because oil 
washes out too easily. Don't 
oil the crankcase! Those 
bearings must have grease , and 
all the oil will do is wash out 
whatever grease is in there. 
About twice a year take those 
bearings out and grease them 
well. On better bikes --those 
with wide hubs and quick-release 
mechanisms- -the hubs should also 
be taken apart and greased twice 
a year. Oh yes, and the steering 
head bearings while you're at it. 

Brakes should be lubricated 
at pivot points , but remember to 
keep oil off the rubber parts. 
Brake levers shouldn't need any 
nil if they're kept clean, but 
I guess a little couldn't hurt 
anything. 

Derailleurs need some special 
attention because they just hang 
out there naked, unlike three 
speed hubs like the Sturmey Archer 
which are fully enclosed. Keep 
derailleurs clean, and use oil 
on everything except the gears 
and cables, which need light 
grease. Learn how to adiust 
your derailleurs, because sooner 
or later the cables will stretch 



and they'll need readjustment. 
Mess around with them a little-- 
if you screw things up, you 
can always take them to a bike 
shop. Just keep in mind that 
there are only two adjustments to 
make, one to keep the thing from 
going too far out, the other 
from pushing the chain too far in. 
With a 10-speed you have four 
adjustments in all, two in 
back and two in front. 



at $9. 9b, but is really com- 
plete. Send to parts houses, 
listed in the book, for cata- 
logues which are really edu- 
cational. Hound your public 
library if you can't afford to 
buy books, and, if you really 
want to take care of your bike, 
read all you can, and don't 
be afraid to try. 




Three speed hubs are even 
easier. Many of them have oil 
fittings- -lift up the little 
cap and pour in some light oil 
about every two months. Adjust- 
ment is easy, and always well 
explained in the sheet or book- 
let you get with the bike. 

Cones are little things that 
keep wheels from wobbling, pedals 
from jiggling, and handlebars 
from coming off in your hands. 
They need adjustment now and then, 
and can be a little tricky. On 
wheels, they should be tightened 
(screwed in with a special cone 
wrench or cone pliers) until the 
wheel rotates freely, but has 
no side play. You might consider 
calling a good bike mechanic for 
this since an out-of-whack cone 
is going to wear out quickly 
and screw up your bearings. 

Well, folks, be advised: 
this article is just an outline. 
For more detail, pick up a 
good book on bicycles, like 
Edward Sloane's Complete Book 



Wolfe Publishing in London 
has just brought out a book by 
Brian Ford which they claim 
(convincingly) has the longest 
title in the world: Nonscience 
and Pseudotransmogrificationalific 



Pots and Knots 
tie up library 



Opening Sunday, Oct. 17 at 
2 p.m. and continuing through Fri- 
day, Oct. 29 at the Centenary 
Library is a duo-exhibition by 
Sylvia Gallagher and Tom Mac- 
Fender . 

Mrs. Gallagher will exhibit 
stoneware while Fender will 
have macrame hanging. 

Mrs. Gallagher is a native 
of the Ark-La-Tex area. She 
began her study of glazes and 
the potter's wheel in 1957. She 
has since studied with Bernard 
Beach of St. Ives, England; Eva- 
line Seliors of Fort Worth, 
Texas; Karen Karnes of Stony 
Point, N.Y.; and a workshop at 
Penland, N.C. This past simmer 
she was at Baylor University for 
six weeks of study of related 
crafts under Paul Kemp. 

Sylvia Gallagher's pots 
have been accepted in many juried 
exhibitions in the Southwest. 
She exhibits at the Dallas Mu- 
seum of Fine Arts and the Los 
Manos Gallery in Dallas, at 
Southern Galleries in Shreve- 
port, Louisiana Crafts Council 
in New Orleans and Akins Nur- 
sery in Shreveport. 

Tom MacFender is a native 
of Hawkins, Texas, and a 
graduate of Baylor University 
with a fine arts degree. While 
stationed at Barksdale Air Force 
Base, he was given his first ma- 
jor exhibition at Southern Gal- 
leries which was Shreveport 's in- 
troduction to macrame, the age- 
old craft of knotting. The art 
dates back to the fishermen 
who cast their nets beside 
the Sea of Galilee in Christ's 
time- -or before. 

In addition to Southern Gal- 
leries MacFender has exhibited at 
Baylor University, Dallas Museum 



of Fine Arts , Tyler Museum of Art , 
Egocentrified Reorientational Pro- the Theater of Western Springs, 
inherently intracor- 111., and the Upstairs Gallery, 

cere- Riverside Art Center, Riverside, 

Calif. He has had pieces accep- 
ted for juried exhibitions at the 
4th Annual Print, Drawing and

REFLECTION 

'Tis a day of beauty. 

The sun shines sweet and warm on Hardin's fair field. 

As our noble warriors don their headbands 

In opposition to The Magnificent Masters of Melody. 

The foes, who number four in number (Screamin', Scooter, Jof, 

"The Kid") , 
Assisted by various other men (and women) of 

Sound Mind and High Morals, 
Are united in bitter hatred against 

The Glorious Gladiators of the Gridiron.

"Go7"team, go!" 
"Forsooth." 

DIGRESSION II 

The warriors wage war without wit^. 
Pound upon pound of flesh against flesh, 
Straining, with beads of sweat, to conquer the foe. 
Hark: A cry: "Please, come thou now, most 
welcome Half." 

HYMN 

"Oh, beautiful Half. 

How luscious are thy cool breezes, 

How delicate are thy fair maidens, 

How inspiring are thy marching kazoos."

Hogs, Horns, Cowboys, Saints 

the two teams with the biggest 
following in this area, clash 
Sunday in New Orleans. The 
Dallas Cowboys will be coming 
off Monday night's lackluster 
victory over the New York Giants, 
while the Saints will be trying 
to rebound from their defeat by 
the Bears last Sunday. On the 
basis of previous games between 
these two teams, it should be a 
close game as the Saints always 
are up for the Cowboys. None- 
theless, with the return of 
Duane Thomas to the Cowboys, I 
look for a decisive victory 
for the Cowboys. The game be- 
gins Sunday at noon on Channel 
12.

Two games involving four of 
the area's major football teams 
dominate the sports scene this 
weekend. 

Although Saturday's Shoot- 
out Number 3 between Texas and 
Arkansas in Little Rock does not 
have the luster it has had the 
last two years, it remains the 
big game of the year in tins 
area and in the Southwest Con- 
ference. Unlike the last two 
years, a possible national 
championship does not seem to be 
at stake as both teams have lost 
one game. Nonetheless, in all 
probability, tomorrow's winner 
will go on to win the conference 
and a berth in the Cotton Bowl. 

In tomorrow's game, the 
Razorbacks seem to have the edge 
The 10th ranked Longhorns have 
injury problems especially at 
quarterback where they may have 
to start third string sophomore 
Rob Riviere. Also the Longhorns 
have to shake off the effects of 
last week's shocking massacre by 
Oklahoma. Meanwhile, the Hogs 
have been improving weekly and 
will have the heme field advan- 
tage. For those who cannot 
make the trip to the game it 
will be on Channel 3 in the 
Shreveport area.

Intramural News 



Following are some of the 
highlights of this week's in- 
tramural acti on . 



A clutch comeback performance 
by Kappa Sig I last Thursday 
enabled the Sigs to squeeze by 
TKE II, 20-19, in one of the most 
exciting and well-played games 
of the season. The TKE's jumped 
to a quick 13-0 lead which was 
cut to 13-6 by Mark McMurry's 
touchdown run on the last play 
of the first half. 

The Sigs received the second 
half kick-off, but were unable 
to move and were forced to punt. 
The TKE's then struck quickly 
for another touchdown on a great 
pass reception by Randy Avery 
from the arm of Emmett Tread- 
away, making the score 19-6. 
At this point, the Sigs struck 
back on a twisting run by McMirry, 
who used his blockers (including 
a dog) extremely well to go in 
for the score to make it 19-13. 
THfe Sigs got the ball again on 
Chris Carey's interception, 
which set the stage for their 
climactic final drive. The 
Sigs methodically, marched down 
the field, mainly on passes 
from McMurry to Dave Carlton. 
This combination accounted for 
the tying touchdown and the win- 
ning extra point. The TKE's got 
the ball again, but they could 
not muster a score before time 
ran out. 



In Monday's battle of the un- 
victorious, KA II prevailed 
over the Big Riggers 19-6. 
The turning point of the game was 
the opening on- sides kick which 
was recovered by the Alkies . 
They then struck quickly on a 
scramblin* run by quarterback 
Lyne Gamble. Not to be denied, 
the Big Riggers retaliated 
with a multi-pronged offense 
which marched down the field for 
a score. The score came on a 
pass to Allen McKemie who 
pitched back to quarterback Tom 
Musselman to tie the score 6-6. 
From this point the Alkies domi- 
nated the game with Gamble scoring 
two more touchdowns. After 
their initial impressive drive 
the Riggers were plagued by 
penalties in crucial situations. 
However, the Riggers were success- 
ful in keeping the record clean 
of victories. 



MSM remained in play-off 
contention Tuesday, as they 
defeated TKE I 18-0 behind a 
stout defense and an effective 
passing attack. MSM's first 
touchdown was set up by Cecil 
Fletcher's interception return 
deep into TKE territory. Eric 
Switzer passed to a leaping 
Rusty Simmons for the score 
early in the game. 

In the second half, MSM 
scored two more touchdowns. 
The first came on a fourth down 
pass to Chad Carnahan from 
Switzer. A few moments later, 
Switzer hit Jeff Alexander with 
a bomb for the final score. 

MSM's defense was especi- 
ally tough inside their own 
20 -yard line as the TKE's re- 
peatedly drove down the field 
only to be stopped just short 
of the goal line. MSM's only 
real problem was the extra 
point play which they never 
successfully completed.

OPEN EAR 



By Scott Kemerling 



There are still probably 
many people on this campus who 
aren't familiar with what Open 
Ear is. Open Ear is mainly a 
referral agency for people 
with problems. People call Open 
Ear and they are given the name 
of some organization that can 
deal with their problem. Open 
Ear also provides a listening and 
short-term counseling service. 
These services are conducted 
over the telephone. The phones 
are manned by volunteers who first 
go through a training session to 
become acquainted with their du- 
ties. The next training session 
will be held Monday, Tuesday, and 
Wednesday nights, Oct. 25, 26, 27, 
in the basement of the library. 

Anyone who is interested in 
working with Open Ear should go 
by and get an application from 
Mr. Eddie Vetter's office in the 
basement of the library. Appli- 
cants must be at least 18 years 
of age. Ooen Ear needs volunteers 

SAC Meets 

By Kathy Parrish 

The Student Activities Com- 
mittee met on Tuesday, Oct. 19, 
1971 in the Smith Building. The 
nominations for Who's Who in 
American Colleges and Universi- 
ties were decided. These six- 
teen names were sent to the 
national committee for appro- 
val, which group will notify the 
students selected. 

Also at Tuesday's meeting 
the framework of the committee 
was reiterated, the main ap- 
proach being -that the commit- 
tee will attack every proposal 

To Page Nine 



Vetter said that if he can get 
enough people to work he would 
like to expand the hours of 
operation to possibly. all night 
instead of just from 8 to mid- 
night on week nights and to 
1 a. m. on weekends. 

Vetter would like next week, 
Oct. 24-30, to be Open Ear Week 
on campus. This will mainly con- 
sist of a fund drive. Open 
Ear exists solely on donations, 
so if there are no donations 
there will be no Open Ear. Vet- 
ter is hoping that each student 
will contribute at least $1.00. 
Saturday, Oct. 30, high school 
students will be out collecting 
donations. Anyone else who 
would like to help on that day 
should meet at the amphitheater 
at 7:30 a. m. to get their 
assignments. 

Open Ear is an important 
community service. It provides 
people with ways to cope with 
problems they might not have been 
able to handle. Support Open 
Ear. Send your donations to: 
Box 247, Centenary College. 



The Honor Court announced 
Monday that it has met and has 
found a student guilty of 
plagiarism. The penalty was an 
F in the work involved. No 
other details may be released 
to students, according to 
Chief Justice Terry Springer. 

Miss Springer also announced 
that a list of Honor Court jus- 
tices is being posted in each 
classroom, so that violations 
of the Honor Code may be re- 
ported promptly.

CONGLOMERATE 



October 22, 19? 1 






On the Executive Council 

Two weeks ago, the CONGLOMERATE was pleased to note 
that the Student Government Association was planning to 
hold a referendum election in order to determine exact- 
ly what the Centenary students wanted and expected from 
their elected representatives. We felt that, armed with 
this information, the SGA could follow a program tailored 
to the needs and, desires of this campus and make truly 
valuable contributions towards making Centenary a eood, 
working community. 

We still feel* this way. 

Unfortunately, not only have the results of the re- 
ferendum not been announced by the Executive Council of 
the SGA, they have not even been read. There has been 
a preliminary study of the ballots, but these results 
were largely of a statistical nature and revealed little 
of what the CONGLOMERATE and the student body wanted to 
know. That is, what does Centenary think of itself and 
what does it think should be done to correct its faults. 
Until we get this knowledge, we have no way to measure 
the progress of the SGA , the Student Senate or any ot- 
her agency on campus , towards meeting the needs of Cen- 
tenary as seen by those who live here, and we feel that 
this knowledge, as it is_ available, is essential to the 
•operation of this college. 

We realize that the Executive Council has been ope- 
rating under handicaps, a new secretary had to be cho- 
sen and made familiar with the job and the president 
was out of town for several days. We feel, however, 
that arrangements should have been made beforehand to 
review the. election results in order that some infor- 
mation could be given to the student body. The ulti- 
mate responsibility for this failure lies with the 
president, even in his absence, and the CONGLOMERATE 
feels that we are due some sort of explanation as to why 
the results have not been compiled and made public yet. 
It has, after all, been eleven days since the ballots 
were 1 in. J.W. 

Speaker's 
Corner 

Well, as usual the militant apathetics of Centenary 
showed booming interest in their student government by making a 
rousing rally to the polls on election day. To all you greatly 
interested freshmen, I say, "Thank you for caring." 

Although my campaign was not a totally serious one, the 
ideas behind it were. By setting forth a platform full of sen- 
sible nonsense, I attempted to show how little campaign slogans 
are really worth. Also, I felt it was about time that people 
stopped using trite phrases to cover up for their lack of concrete 
ideas. This is not meant to be derogatory to any of the other 
candidates, but is rather my feeling about how a campaign should 
be conducted. Obviously, my methods did not catch on. They did 
stir up some definite feelings, however. For example, when asked 
whether she would consider me a worthy candidate, one party replied, 
"I want to know why she entered the race so late. She certainly 
hasn't got my vote!" and another said, "She sounds like she's 
rather stuck on herself to me!" At least this shows some sign of 
a shift from apathy to some degree of concern, even if these 
weren't the results I was aiming for. 

I feel that our student government will continue to be ineffec- 
tive as long as three -fourths of the student body don't know 
what's going on and/or don't care. The government needs to use 
more imagination and needs to be more centralized. By this, I 
mean #\t each part needs to relate more efficiently to the whole. 
'vn exdple of this is the disorganization of the elections com- 
mittee, or whoever was supposed to be responsible for letting 
everyone know (especially the candidates) when campaign speeches 
were to be held. Upon asking around, I could find no one to 
advise me of the time and place for the speeches. This is a 
rather strange phenomenon, one that could have been avoided had 
there been more communication among the Senate members. 

I sincerely wish the new senators good luck in helping to 
make our government more effective. It is certainly worth the 
trouble.

Dear Editor: 

As a member of the Centenary 
College student body, I feel that 
the students should know about 
the workings (?) of the executive 
council. Today, I attertded a 
meeting which astounded me. The 
meeting was called twenty minu- 
tes later than scheduled due to 
a ping-pong game. As normal 
practice, these meetings are u- 
sually held at the Pizza King; 
but due to poor lighting there, 
they were moved back to campus . 
At this meeting, a proposal was 
presented and an "O.K." was 
given because no one knew whe- 
ther or not a quorum was pre- 
sent , and whether or not the 
proposal could be voted on by 
the Executive Council. There was 
no organization at the meeting 
at all. 

Is this the way, you as a 
Centenary Student, want your 
executive council run? Remem- 
ber that the Executive Council 
controls entertainment, student 
recruiting, the SUB and Forums. 



Think about it! 



Rick Clark 



Dear Editor: 

Congratulations are in order 
for the fine job that you and 
your staff are doing in cover- 
ing campus activities this year. 
We at the Library appreciate 
your help in calling attention "■ 
to new library items that we feel 
will be of special interest 
and use to both students and fac- 
ulty. We are also grateful 
for your good reporting of campus 
events. The new CONGLOMERATE has 
frequently been our best source 
for answering the questions we 
receive concerning the where, 
what, and when about such matters 
as club meetings, plays, lec- 
tures , concerts , and ball games . 
Thanks , too , in a personal way 
for giving us the times and 
dates for the many interesting 
programs that we want to attend 
each week and which we might 
otherwise miss. 

Yours very sincerely, 
Charles W. Harrington 
Head Librarian 



Dear Editor: 

I have a proposal to make 
that might satisfy many of the 
concerns of the campus, now. 
It would be to construct a 
Tavern for the renovation of the 
SUB, legalize the consumption of 
beer there, and create some sort 
of center of gravity for the stu- 
dent body. 

It seems like it would be 
easy enough to reserve a corner 
in the Student Union Building 
for this Tavern, and would prob- 
ably create great interest in 
having it completed. It also 
seems that with the tavern idea 
rather than the proposed ice 
cream parlor, it may bring a 
sense of responsibility and con- 
cern on the individual's part. 
This would lead to a much more 
intellectual atmosphere, es- 
pecially being located on cam- 
pus, and the range of topics 
of discussion would increase. 
It would be a center for inter- 
ests. 

Then, for the entertainment 
committee, if there were a stage 
available for "Coffee House Cir- 
cuits", and other performances 
in the tavern , I imagine it 
would set an ideal atmosphere. 

As other private , parochial , 
and public schools have done 
this with great success, I do 
believe it would be a great ad- 
vantage for Centenary to step 
up to the pace of college stu- 
dents .

More 
Mail 

To The E lit r: 

1 would very much appreciate 
your printing a revised descrip- 
tion of my proposed Interim course, 
Introduction to Linguistics, 
since the one you printed last 
Friday (Oct. 15) was almost to- 
tally misleading, indeed hilari- 
ous , in the purview of modem 
linguistics. I cannot imagine 
where you got your information, 
but it wasn't from me. (I have 
had students inquire about the 
nature of the course, but none 
identified himself as a CON- 
GLOMERATE reporter.) You may 
refer to the official descrip- 
tion of the course and note the 
following : 

1. There will be a text, 
plus outside readings, although 
class time primarily will be 
given to analysis in a lab -type 
situation'. 

2. After a brief treatment 
of phonetics, language (s) will 
be analyzed for sound structure 
(phocemics) and grammatical struc- 
ture (morphemics) . Some attention 
will be paid to historical 
development of language (s). 

3. Linguistics is a tool 
used by such divergent disci- 
plines as anthropology and lan- 
guage arts. And you are right, 
finally, there is no prerequi- 
site. 

If you need further clari- 
fication, I'll be happy of 
course to supply it. Meanwhile, 
thanks a lot (which is not de- 
rived from Ding -Dong nor Bow-Wow) . 

R. Johnson Watts 
Assistant Professor 
of German 
P. S. Some of the faculty have 
noted that many students still 
believe that Interim will in- 
volve .tuition charges for on- 
campus courses. May I suggest 
special publicity be given to 
the fact that Interim courses are 
free for regularly enrolled stu- 
dents, and a certain number re- 
quired (cf--new rules on Interim).

Dear Editor: 

I would like to share a 
"reading the -CONGLOMERATE 
experience" with you. 

I guess I had gotten to page 
2 or 3 last week when suddenly 
and without warning I felt a 
strange stirring, movement coming 
from deep within the bowels of 
your publication. Yes, and I 
heard shuffling, palpitating 
noises, the sounds of newsprint 
being torn and slashed with a 
violence that is normally alien 
to the CONGLOMERATE.. Needless 
to say, it was very unnerving. 

Throwing the newspaper 
immediately to my desk, I then 
carefully turned some more pages, 
the activity within becoming 
livelier the closer my burrowing 
brought me to its source. What 

ritual iy found was truly 
incredible. The Greek column 
on page 8 had almost complete ]y 
devoured the "recipe corner" 
on page 9. Shredded remnants 
of the recipe clung suspicious- 
ly to the edges of the teethy 
paragraphs describing various 
Greek activities like so many 
nieces of gnarled flesh hanging 
from the lips of a beast. 

A few minutes later I happened 
to notice that the Greek column 
had a strangely colorful and 

hedelic character about it. 

All in all it was the most 
unusual oxerience t have ever 

with the print medium.

Response Termed 
Encouraging on SUB 
Proposals by Miller 



The response to the request 
for interested persons to be on 
the steering committee for the 
SUB Project has been most en- 
couraging. The following students 
have volunteered to participate: 
Mark McMurry, Dena Taylor, Mac 
Thomas, Pam Sargent, and Rick 
Clark.. 

Still needed, however, are 
three students. One of these 
students should be an art major, 
one a theatrical production set 
designer, and one a business 
major. If you have expertise in 
one of these areas and are in- 
terested in participating on 
the steering committee, please 
contact the Dean of Students 
Office at your earliest con- 
venience . 

Several faculty members 
have responded positively to 
the request for their periodic 
assistance. In fact, three 
faculty members, Mr. Parker, 
Mr. Vetter, and Mr. Evans have 
agreed to meet regularly with the 
steering committee to help in 
guidance and planning. The 
first meeting of the committee 
will be held this coming week. 




THE TOWN CRIER, Sophomore Senator Rick Clark, as seen in the 
SUB last Monday spreading the word. What word? Catch him at next 
Monday's break, and find out.

Perplexed by the predicament of 
modern man 1 ? Popular "ictures of 
Modem Man and How They Control 
Us is an in-depth study of what 
non- technical and/ or popular 
literature can add to the under- 
standing of man in his present 
situation. Dr. Hughes Cox, 
chairman of the philosophy de- 
partment, has described the 
course as a structured and 
open-ended bull session looking 
in out-of-the-way places for new 
understandings of modem man. 
Examples for the course will be 
drawn from other media inclu- 
ding the movies, television, and 
the comics. The instructor will 
provide the initial bibliography 
and discussion for the course. 
Among the works included in this 
initial bibliography are One

PHYSICAL EDUCATION 1-99 
introduction to Winter 



Sports . Contrary to information 
received for an earlier article, 
this course is scheduled to be 
held. For the student wishing 
to combine fun and exercise, 
the Physical Education Depart- 
ment is offering a ski trip to 
Aspen, Colorado. Students en- 
rolled in the course will spend 
ten. days in Aspen learning how 
to ski under the direction of 
the Aspen Ski School. The cost 
of the trip is $300 which includes 
lodging, Continental breakfast, 
lift tickets, and ski equipment. 
However, the student is responsible 
for the transportation costs to 
and from Aspen and the costs 
of additional meals. The course 
begins on Jan. 7, and Miss Shar- 
ron Settlemire, instructor in 
physical education, is spon- 
sor for the trip. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION 1-99 
Seminar in Therapeutic and 
Adaptive Activities . This seminar 
course will concern the thera-

and agencies in the area which 
offer these services. The 
course will meet at the regular 
scheduled interim time arid will 
be taught by Coach Val Tucker, 
head of the physical education 
department .

As dean of Centenary College, 
Thand Norton Marsh is the chief 
academic officer of the college, 
which entails : 1.) supervision 
of academic departments, 2.) li- 
iason to the faculty, and 3.) ad- 
ministration of the entire educa- 
tional program. Administratively 
speaking, Dean Marsh has charge 
of admissions, financial aid, 
records, library, evening and 
summer divisions and non- 
departmental academic functions, 
such as the computer center and 
the center for management develop- 
ment. 

According to the above data 
the following people are under the 
direction of Dean Marsh: James 
P. Shultz, Mrs. Rosemary Eubanks, 
Mrs. Zama Russell, Charles W. 
Harrington, Dr. Ferrell Pled- 
ger, Dr. Rufus F. Walker, and 
Dr. John Berton. He is also 
involved in many committees , 
as both President Allen and he 
are ex-officio members of all 
the committees of the college 
except those elected by the 
faculty. Specifically he chairs 
these committees: curriculum, 
catalogue, and a subcommittee 
on admissions of the academic

last committee sets general 
policies for admission. Some 
of his other duties include 
membership on the following com- 
mittees: the library committee, 



the academic petitions committee, 
and the honorary degree commit- 
tee; presiding at faculty meet- 
ings : faculty development; and 
representation of the college at 
a number of national organizations. 

Dean Marsh also acts as aca- 
demic liason to the Southern As- 
sociation of colleges and schools 
which is our regional accredi- 
tation association. From his 
"very close working -relation- 
ship' with the president" he 
represents the college to the 
Southern College and University 
Union of which both the President 
and he are members of the gover- 
ning board. 

Among his daily activities 
are appointments both with stu- 
dents and faculty; correspon- 
dence; occasional meetings with 
department chairmen. The main 
reasons for the appointments 
with students are academic dif- 
ficulties and, sometimes , to 
apply academic discipline. In 
the field of correspondence he 
handles everything having to do 
with student records and achieve- 
ments. Also in his letters are 
those that the president feels 
need his attention, even though 
they may be addressed to Presi- 
dent Allen. Dean Marsh, with 
his degree from the University 
of Oxford, is a very capable 
man in dealing with all of 
the varied aspects of being dean 
of a college.

The South Shall Rise Again 



The emergence of the Uhder- 
coast, the South 's challenge to 
the East and West coasts , was 
the topic of Bill Rushton, last 
Monday's Forums speaker. 

Rushton .managing editor of 
the Vieux Carre Courier , stated 
that this emergence was due to 
the South 's position after the 
Civil War. Instead of forging 
ahead into the middle of the 
industrial revolution, the South 
retreated into a shell, not to 
emerge until recently. Somewhat 
confusingly, Rushton then said 
that the South was not taking 
over - as the rest of the coun- 
try realized the adverse effects 
of the industrial revolution. 

Today, computer wizadry, com- 
bined with the Southern emphasis 
on a service economy, blossoms 
forth in such leisure wonders as 
the Astrodome, Disney World, 
and the proposed New Orleans Su- 



perdome . 

Concentrating on New Orleans, 
Rushton stated it has always been 
•he original liberated city. The 
culture began with a French influ- 
ence, added Spanish and Negro. 
Today, Cuban refugees have settled 
there, a gay colony flourishes, 
and hippies wander relatively 
unmolested. 

Mardi Gras was an extended 
topic; Rushton reported last 
year's activities of the Cr.< 
of Cannabis, and explained some 
of this year's plans. Included 
is a proposed freak ball at one 
of the city's larger convent io: 
centers . 

"The South shall rise again, 
Rushton stated, as a leader of 
revolutionary and progressive 
changes. Bill Rushton, an anti- 
matter klansman, a paradoxical 
establishment hippie.

Garrett and Rick Clark as they present her with flowers from the Stu- 
dent Senate for her 18 years of cheerful mimeo work for students. 



CIRUNA Chapter 
Planned on Campus 



A Centenary chapter of the 
Council on International Rela- 
tions and United Nations Affairs 
is currently in the making. 
CIRINA, as the organization is 
called, describes itself as a 
"national student organization 
devoted to the creation of know- 
ledgeable and informed opinion 
on issues of intemation con- 
cern; to the building of in- 
telligent public support for 
the United Nations, for the 
priciples embodied in its 
Charter and in the Universal 
Declaration of Human Rights; 
and to the advancement of 
peace based on justice and 
freedom." 

Through CIRUNA, students 
and other members funnel their 
ideas on international issues to 
the top leaders of government 
in an effort to influence 
policy making. It is a non- 
profit organization, affiliated 
with the United Nations Asso- 
ciation of the United States of 
America and has counterpart or- 
ganizations in more than forty 
countries throughout the world. 
Topics covered by CIRUNA include 
Southern Africa, the People's 
Republic of China, Economic 
development in the Third world 
countries , international aspects 
of the environment and the War. 

The local chapter is current- 
ly being sponsored by Dr. Viva 
Rainey of the History and Govern- 
ment department and will hold its 
first meeting on Nov. S at Dr. 
Rainey 's house, 312 Columbia. 
Dr. Rainey said that they hoped 
to have the regional director 
of CIRUNA, Calvin Allen of Gram- 
bling College, at the meeting. 

The organization will be 
open to both students and in- 
terested town people, and 
special invitations will be 
sent to all foreign students 
at Centenary. Anyone interes- 
ted in this type of activity 
may sign up for CIRUNA by 
putting their name on the list 
which can be found on the 
government department bulletin 
board.

Robin Williams Has 
Two More Nights 

Take cheer, dear hearts, 
the coffeehouse circuit is 
back in action! This time, 
Robin Williams, a singing South 
Carolinian, is the attraction 
and his act has two more nights 
to go here. That means you can 
catch him in the SUB either to- 
night or tomorrow night starting 
at 9 p. m. and going until he 
either runs out of songs or 
audience . 

Robin describes himself as 
a pop singer, folk freak, coun- 
try-western buff and southern 
drawl conversationalist par ex- 
cellence. His only accompani- 
ment is a guitar, and his per- 
formance features an empty 
stage, which fits in well with 
his very non- gimmick)' act. No. 
frills, no tricks, just songs 
and talk. 

About his songs, Robin says, • 
"I have no particular theme or 
message to get across , I just 
like ..to entertain." He usually 
sings such songs as "Carolina 
On My Mind," "Ruby," "Gentle 
On My Mind," and "Waist Deep. 
In The Big Muddy." When moving 
in a sufficiently country -wes- 
tern vein, he can also be per- 
suaded to play "You Stomped On 
My Heart." He has recently 
started to add his own songs 
to his repertoire. 

He is from Myrtle Beach , 
S. C. , and got his musical 
start by joining various ama- 
teur groups in high school and 
college. He graduated from 
Presbyterian College in South 
Carolina where he majored in 
history and has been on the 
coffeehouse tour ever since. 



Centenary Joins with Other 
Methodist Schools in Program 



■ftto 



Centenary College has 
joined with 101 other colleges 
affiliated with the United 
Methodist Church in a "precedent - 
shattering" New Men for New 
Days program to confront some 
of their common problems and 
jointly capitalize on their 
greater potential as a force 
in higher education. 

Dr. John H. Allen announced 
the participation of Centenary in 
the national program designed to 
overcome the lack of understanding 
and financial insecurity con- 
fronting church-related insti- 
tutions of higher education. 

The program, unanimously 
approved by the president or 
and 20 junior colleges meeting 
in Washington, is intended to 

(1) refocus the educational 
mission of the church-related 
schools on the development of 
human values and societal needs ; 

(2) attract additional students 
whose aspirations coincide with 
these new goals for a more hu- 
mane educational experience, 
and (3) raise $400,000,000 in

site but a previous religion 
course would be helpful. 
SOCIOLOGY 1-99 
Sociology of Religion . Dr. 
Pledger's course is designed to 
give the student an insight 
into significance and symbolism 
of religion as an institution 
and attempt to apply all the 
principles of sociology such as 
ethnocentrism, attitude formation, 
attitude change, and signficance 
of religion to such institutions 
as family, economics, politics, 
and welfare. There are no pre- 
requisites or extra expense.

BSU Holds Convention in Monroe 



The Louisiana Baptist Student 
Convention will be held Oct. 29- 
31 at Parkview Baptist Church in 
Monroe. This year's theme is 
"Celebrating His Presence." The 
convention will be hosted by stu- 
dents at Northeast University. 

The program will include 
speakers from Texas, Louisiana 
and Tennessee and a missionary 
couple from Ethiopia. Also there 
will be seminars on such topics 
as the Jesus Movement , Women ' s 
Lib and Religious Wars. 

The registration fee is $1.00, 
with transporation additional at

new, unrestricted funds over a 
three to five year period, be- 
ginning in January, 1973. 

Dr. Myron F. Wicke, General 
Secretary of the Division of 
Higher Education of the United 
Methodist Church, characterized 
the program as a "unique approach 
unprecedented in the history of 
church -related higher education 
in this country. 

"It means we can approach 
the world in a united manner, 
boldly reopening the issue of 
church- related education, and 
making the most intelligent and 
imaginative plans we can to 
move from a posture of defense 
to one of attack." 

The program formulated to 
undertake this initiative was 
developed by the Barton-Gillet 
Company, a nationally Tcnown firm 
based in Baltimore specializing 
in institutional communications. 

Initially called New Men for 
New Days, the program will seek 
to focus national attention on 
the merits of church-related 
education. 



Candidates Come 
To Campus 




Johnston's dav in SUB 



And. ..The Race Goes On 



by Taylor Caffery 
Ain't this a mess? Twenty- 
one candidates pushing, shoving, 
kicking, and screeching through 
a statewide king-of-the-hill 
contest, while most Louisianians, 
ignoring the pandemonium, 
choose instead to cheer the Saints 
or curse the weather. 

Some of the contestants, of 
course, handle themselves with 
more public civility than others, 
usually according to the compo- 
sition of their immediate audi- 
ence and the proximity of election 
Day. That day, Nov. 6, is about 
two weeks away, so it's time 
for the furious, fabled Last 
Lap of Louisiana Leaders, the 
dark highpoint of Southern 
Gothic politics. 

Because movies and the TV 
tube have allowed Louisiana a 
glimpse of the Outside World 
(and the visible modem desire 
to be with it) , the candidates ' 
image is collectively cooler 
than it was in the days of dep- 
ression, Huey, and Leander. 
Speedy Long is a case in point. 

Though admittedly an old- 
style oilfield-worker-turned- 
polii-.ician, a self-made hand- 
waving barnstormer, Speedy Long 
came to Centenary on Oct. 14 
all duded-up, if you will, to 
speak before a small number of 
students in the SUB. He talked 
about high insurance rates, and 
vocational training, and offing 
the deadheads. When he was in 
college, he said, he participated 
in all statewide and local elec- 
tions that came his way. "I 
just got involved, because I 
thought it was the thing to do." 
He always had to work for a 
living, though. "When I was 
elected to the state senate, I 
worked in the oilfield offshore." 
He is a citizen, a registered 
voter, over thirty years old 
(qualifications for Governor) , 
a Congressman, a worker. 

David Treen, who spoke later 
the same day, promised a new 
national image for the Louisiana 
Hayride state, if only he can get 



elected. "I'm not concerned 
about party," he said, "but it 
does give me one unique advan- 
tage--! 'm the only candidate 
reasonably sure of being the 
the February general election." 
Treen, y'see, is a Republican, 
one of the South 's more pugna- 
cious minority groups. He be- 
lieves that the "greatest need 
we have in Louisiana is to have 
a man who is completely free and 
independent of the old-line poli.- 
tical system,'' and he tried to 
convince his listeners here at 
Centenary that he is that man. 
Treen is apprehensive about the 
toll road, against discrimina- 
tion and busing, and somewhere 
around a nine on the Abbie Hoff- 
man-Robert Shelton hyper-conser- 
vative rating. 

Bennett Johnston came to 
school last Tuesday, drawing 
a large audience to the SUB 
during the break. In this cam- 
paign, began the chrome -domed 
39-year-old Shreveport favorite 
son, "the name of the game is 
promises , promises , promises . " 
In a slight twist on the reputed 
fad, Johnston promised not to 
make any (under the table). 
Although: he'll pass a law 
against buying votes (a pur- 
chase act he charges Gill is and 
SOUL/COUP with), he'll end Vic- 
tor Bussre"s dictatorship, and 
he'll support a four-year LSU-S. 
P. J. Mills, running for Lt. 
Governor, slowed down long enough 
to visit Centenary Tuesday, di- 
ning in the Cafeteria Green Room 
with about twenty students, and 
undertaking a handshake tour of 
the campus. Mills has a Master's 
degree in government. 

For students who still find 
the picture confusing, the li- 
brary has on reserve copies of 
the PAR Voters ' Guide To The Elec - 
tions , published by the Public 
Affairs Research Council in Baton 
Rouge. The descriptions of the 
state offices, the candidates, 
and the election schedules can 
be helpful in making decisions. 
It's stashed at the Circulation 
Desk.

Organized Ambling- 
Through the Woods 
With the Ozark Society 

By Sam Hill 
[n the reply to the last campus referen- 
dum many students indicated thai they'd like 
- amping or canoeing club .it 
Prob Lem olved rhere al ready is 

one . 

irl Society, composed oi townspeople 

and students, has weekend outings to Arkansas, 
Texas,! ' back country, and meets 

it the Library. Hi nization is 

relatively young but has already been suc- 
cessful in assisting several conservation 
canpaigns to protect such I beauty 

i i ilo River and the Cossatot 
River in Arkansas and Poverty Point in 
l oui si ana. 

At the monthly meeting last Tuesday, 
Charles Hoenke and Huey Sanders of the 
La. Wildlife and Fisheries Commission 
presented slides and comments on the 

ins of preserving streams in Louisiana 
and the prospects for the new Louisiana 
Scenic Rivers System authorized by the State 
Legislature in 1970. 

cers are Byron Gibbs, chairman; Irene 
Armstrong, vice chairman; Don Duggan, treasurer 
and Charley Harrington, secretary. Student 
dues, only $2 per year, cover the chapter 
newsletter and national Ozark Society Bulletin 
subscriptions. Next weekend, the organization 
is chartering a bus to Washington D. C. to at- 
tend congressional hearings on the Buffalo 
River-Scenic River Bill, 

Upcoming weekend outings will include a 
Mt. Delaney Day Hike near Plain Dealing, a 
Caney Creek Family Back Pack in Southern Arkan- 
sas, the society Annual Fall Meeting at Pettit 
Jean Mountain (scenery, trails, waterfalls, 
mountains), a Columbia Area Day Hike, and Oach- 
ita River canoe trip. 

The Ozark Society was formed in 1965 
in Fayette vi lie, Arkansas, for the purpose 
of saving the Buffalo River from damming 
by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. Suc- 
cessful in that , the Society has now assumed 
a position of leadership in regional con- 
servation activities. It is now engaged on 
a number of fronts in the current environ- 
mental crisis, chiefly the preservation of 
wild and scenic lands and streams of the 
Ozark-Ouachita region and adjacent areas. 

The principal Society activities in- 
clude the publishing of a quarterly il- 
lustrated bulletin, "The Ozark Society Bul- 
letin"; conservation education through 
special mailings, newsletters, and seminars; 
appearances at public hearings; and the con- 
duct of hiking and canoeing outings, All 
work is voluntary and there are no paid 
employees. Expenses are partially defrayed 
by dues, the balance by generous contribu- 
tions. 

Two annual meetings are held, one in 
the spring and one in the fall. The Bayou 
Chapter was organized in January, 1969, and 
has grown to over 200 members in the local 
area. Since its inception the Chapter has 
conducted an active outing schedule averaging 
at least two outings a month. 

In the coming year, the Chapter will 
offer at its meetings an interesting number 
ni programs on current conservation topics.

Two Short Papers on 
How To Spend Time 

Constructively 



A Return to Brooks Street 



by Theresa 

What is Brooks Street? Generally, when 
students refer to Brooks S1 reel they are 
talking about the breakfasl program for 
Brooks Street School . But when one asks 
Sister Margaret about Brooks Street, he 
. discovers that it means the vai Lety of 
' programs including monthly picnics, Christ- 
mas programs, the Poor Man'. Supper, and the 
general ministries of the Christian Services 
Program. 

The breakfast program begins at 7:30 a. m. 
with students and other volunteers I rani Li al ly 
attempting to get cereal and sugar poured 
into small milk cartons before the children 
come pouring through the doors which connect 
the cafeteria to the rest of the school. It 
is fortunate when at least one of the stu- 
dents is male so that he can play "guardian 
of the peace" when young boys tease young 
girls. Then the bell signalling commence- 
ment of classes prods the children to rush 
to class. Now the "fun" begins: wiping 
up spilt milk here and there, stepping on 
crisp cereal that crunches beneath one's 
step, and scurrying off just in time to 
make the 8:50 a. m. class. 

Another project included in the Brooks 
Street program is the monthly picnic at 
Betty Virginia Park. Every first Saturday 
of the month Betty Virginia Park is readied 
for the kids. Prior to this time sand- 

Li hes for 200-300 children have been pre- 
pared; student volunteers have trained by 
running around the block for an entire week 
prior to the occasion. Why the training? 
How else is the average college student to 
keen pace with the little guys who have 
been storing energy just for this occasion; 
not to mention the contest with older guys 
in the football game. Other volunteers are 
helping provide organized recreation. Why 
is this done? Sister Margaret wants the chil 
dren to "see something else" at least one 
weekend out of the month. A student volun- 
teer said he feels this is an opportunity for 
the black children to "experience white" and 
have a friend. "It may help in later life." 
It all amounts to people in play: children 
and older youth, black and white. All are 
involved in constructing a "bridge over 
troubled water." 

At St. Vincents another phase of Brooks 
Street is taking place. Toys are being 
gathered, painted, repaired; doll ire being 
mended, clothed and readied. Each gift is 
"fixed Like new," individually wrapped, and 

led so that it is made ready Foi 
delivery at Christmas. "Over loon gifts 
were delivered last year," estimated Sister 
Margaret. 

i inning for the Poor Man's Supper will 
begin Oct. 31, 3:00 p. m. at St. Joseph's. 
In her conversation with me, Sister Margarel 
stressed her desire for Centenary stud 
to help plan and initiate this program and 



Mi Connel I

424-7049. What is the purpose "I the pro

and soup with the hopes thai they wil] "li n

program is used for people Ln poverty. 

What does one mean by poverty? let 
me anser this question by giving a genera] 
description of the type of needs to whii h 
the Christian Servies Program ministers. 
An example is the eight membei Family whip!

the possession of I mens and powdered soap 
as a luxury; those who cannot pun base 
foodstamps because they lack the Funds, [his 
is only a sketch to help give the Fee] oi 
what is meant by poverty. 

Th thrust of the program is aimed toward 
the immediate needs of persons. You or any 
of your friends can make a valuable contri- 
bution. By collecting the "15tf off coupons" 
which one may receive in the mail or when pui 
chasing food, one can contribute to the program 
[terns that cannot be bought with foodstamps 
(toothpaste, toothbrush, powdered soap) are 
in large demand. Bed 'mens are a luxury. 
Any kind oi toy, doll, or good used clothing 
is needed, furniture Oi .my sort, stove,, 
and refrigerators are in demand. All Ltem 
given to the Chrisl Lan len i Program are 
given to these low income families. M one

Kappa Sigma 

While girls in Sexton, James, 
and Hardin dorms were listening 
to James Taylor and contemplating 
whether or not to pop popcorn, 
the Kappa Sigs were contemplating 
and planning a panty raid of 
the girls' dorms. Yes, sports 
fans, a "panty raid! At ap- 
proximately 10:24 p. m. on the 
night of Oct. 14, a large group 
of males was seen entering Har- 
ding Dorm and loudly demanding 
"Panties: !.'" James Dorm had 
already been 'hit," and screaming 
girls were running around warning 
their friends to lock their 
doors --but to no avail, for many 
a silken treasure was confis- 
cated on that dreadful night. 

"The Old Woman 
& the Pig" Opens 
Tonight at 7 

The Opera Theater of Cen- 
tenary College will present two 
performances of the musical "The 
Old Woman § The Pig." One per- 
formance is scheduled for to- 
night at 7:30 p. m. and the 
other on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 
3:00 p. m. Both will be held 
in the Hurley Recital Hall. 

The musical is based on the 
fairy tale concerning an old 
woman who buys a pig and the 
problems which arise when she 
tries to take the pig home. 

Three girls will be alter- 
nating in the role of the Old 
Woman. They are Margaret Wil- 
liams, Carolyn Elfgen, and Donna 
Veach. 

Barbara Strickland and Bonnie 
Little will rotate the role of 
the Pig. Other cast members in- 
clude John Hamilton as Market 
Man, Tom Self as the Dog, Jane 
Silvey as "the" Stick, Lauren 
Chilton as Fire, Iris Irving as 
Cat-, and Sherri Young as Water. 

Dr. Carroll, the composer of 
the play, will also serve as the 
conductor. Miss Mary Beth Armes 
directed the play; Merlin Fahey 
designed the sets, and John 
Hamilton served as stage direc- 
tor. 

Besides the two performances 
here, the cast will tour 13 
elementary schools in the area.

The Dukes of Dixieland will

The Dukes of Dixieland have

ences throughout the world, 
making paths for other jazz ar- 
tists in the pop music world. 
Their brand of music has roots in 
the New Orleans tradition, but 
carries modem embellishments. 

Al Belletto, music direc- 
tor at the Playboy Club in New 
Orleans, holds a Master's Degree 
in music from LSU. His blonde 
vocalist, Angelle Trosclair, 
was winner at the Texas Inter- 
national Jazz Festival and has 
a thoroughly modern delivery, 
with a repertoire ranging from 
"Rainy Days and Mondays" to "Sun- 
ny" and even the old folksong 
"Never Will I Marry." 

A Shreveport jazz ensemble, 
the Gil Phillips Octette, is 
noted for taking big band 
hits and condensing them for 
smaller groups.

Getting the Best for the Least 



By Ann D. Dale 



Jaycee Fair in Baton Rouge 
Has Their Very Own Superstar 



Do you know how to move a grand 
piano without its moving you? 
How to strike booby traps from a 
lease, bargain for old furniture- - 
or make your own cheaply- -kill 
a roach, repair a leaking pipe, 
procure the best food for the 
least money? Martin Poriss 
tells you all this and more in how 

TO LIVE CHEAP BUT GOOD: A PRIMER 
FOR PEOPLE WITH HIGH TASTES AND 

low incomes (American Heritage 
Press, $6.95, $3.95 paperback). 
Martin Poriss, a recent Har- 
vard graduate, has written a com- 
prehensive, carefully organized, 
and extremely practical book of 
advice for the less -than- affluent 
apartment-dweller faced with 
searching for a place to live, 
with moving into it , maintaining 
it- -and himself- -on a basement 
budget. His precise, down-to- 
earth advice is offered with 
lively wit and illustrated with 
cartoons and how-to-do-it diag- 
rams by Charles Hefling, Jr. A 
detailed index makes it easy to 
put a finger on your particular 
problem. 

In showing you "how to swim 
rather than sink, think rather 
than pay," Mr. Poriss deals with 
the following topics: 

How to find and examine apart- 
ments and avoid getting nailed 
by leases or landlords; 
Moving day- -how to dissemble, 
pack, and carry everything 
from teapots to grand pianos; 
rent and drive vans, trailers, 
and trucks ; 

Fixing up an apartment- -from 
cleaning to painting to rug 
repair; creative suggestions 
for making or scrounging fur- 
niture; 

How to handle your landlord 
personally and legally; 
The Inner Man- -ways to get 
the best food for the least 
money, how to cook it, serve 
it, store it- -and clean the 
mess hall ; 

How to slash the utility, 
telephone, and clothing 
bills; 

Home repairs for the man 
with two left hands- -detailed 
remedies for plumbing, drain, 
faucet, and electrical prob- 
lems, sagging doors, and 
stuck windows. 



HOW TO LIVE CHEAP BUT GOOD is 

crammed with useful tips for the 
householder. Here are just a 
few : 

When painting, coat windows and 
hardware with Vaseline- -paint 
spatters will rub off easily. 
Fresh eggs look dull and rough, 
not smooth or shiny. 
Painting radiators with a dull- 
finish oil base paint can 
make your room warmer. 
For greasy work clothes a cup 
of kerosene added to soapy 
laundry water works wonders . 
If all else fails to rid 
your apartment of cock- 
roaches , adopt a toad as a 
pet. 

The mobile young and young - 
at -heart will find this book a 
remarkable guide to the good but 
cheap existence. 

Martin Poriss describes him- 
self as "a serious dabbler." A 
fine cook and classical pianist, 
he was a student of psychology, 
anthropology, and languages 
during his years at Harvard, from 
which he graduated magna cum 
laude in 1970. To earn suffi- 
cient funds to live cheap but 
good, he worked as a bartender, 
bicycle repairman, aab driver, 
and manger of an auto agency. 
Since leaving Cambridge Mr. 
Poriss, who grew up in West Hart- 
ford, Conn. , has been traveling, 
camping, and studying various 
spiritual systems. He wrote how_ 

TO LIVE CHEAP BUT GOOD "tO fill," 

a specific need: to create a 
common body of not -so-common 
common sense."

Teams Shape Up For 

Football Playoffs 



This year's intramural 
football season has been a suc- 
cessful and exciting one , and 
next week's play-offs should be 
equally exciting. MSM's defeat 
of KaDDa Siema I indicates that 
the championship is up for 
grabs. Following are brief 
run-downs of the teams that 
, made the play-offs. The way 
my predictions have come through 
I will not attempt to pick the 
champion 

KAPPA SIG I (8-1 ) 

Star- laden Kappa Sig I again 
goes into the play-offs as 
regular season champs . Mark 
McMurry and his many receivers 
have been the keys to the Sig 
success this year. Their of- 
fense has received more ac- 
'claim, but their defense is 
equally strong. The Sig stand- 
outs are too numerous to men- 
tion. 

MSM (7-2) 

MSM had their problems in 
the early season, but finished 
strong to post impressive wins 
over TKE I and Kappa Sig I . In 
their stretch run, their of- 
fense has not been too consis- 
tent , but it does have the po- 
tential to strike at anytime. 
One of MSM's big assets is 
their team balance and depth. 

KAPPA SIG II (7-2 ) (provided 
they beat the Big Riggers) 

Kappa Sig II accompanres 
Kappa Sig I into the play-offs 
this year. Sig II had a very 
successful regular season pos- 
ting impressive victories over 
MSM and both TKE teams while 
losing only to Kappa Sig I and 
KA I . They are led at quarter- 
back by Don Birkelbach, and 
generally have good team balance 
' Jt not a great deal of depth. 




[All fresfiman boys interes- 
in trying out*'forthe fresh- 
man basketball team should, con- 
tact Coach Wallace immediar'ely,^ 
in the Golden Dome. 



TKE II ■ (7-2) 

TKE II had to overcome in- 
juries to key players Steve 
Weiss and Ray Seibold in the 
first game to make the play- 
offs. Randy Avery, Emmett 
Treadaway, and Dan Sparrow have 
led the TKE II charge. Another 
plus for TKE II is that they 
seem to have the most team 
spirit of the teams in the 
play-offs. 



Sig Winning Streak 
Stopped by MSM; 
Final Score 12-7 



MSM saved their super game 
of the year to upset previously 
undefeated Kappa Sigma I Mon- 
day, 12-7. MSM's stiff defense 
which held the Sig offense 
scoreless paved the way for vic- 
tory. It was the Sig's first 
football loss in more than 30 
games although they had been 
tied once in that stretch. 

The Sig's scored first on 
Chris Carey's interception re- 
turn of a Dale Westmoreland 
pass. A McMurry- to -Coe pass 
scored the extra point. 

MSM struck back just before 
half time on a pass from Eric 
Switzer to Westmoreland. The 
extra point pass failed to 
make the score 7-6. 

The score remained 7-6 
most of the second half, but 
MSM struck suddenly on a pres- 
sure-packed 50-yard scramble by 
Switzer. With about two minutes 
left, on a fourth-down play, 
Switzer dropped back to pass. 
With his receivers covered, he 
started down the left sideline 
and then cut all the way back 
to the right sideline to go in 
for the winning score. 

The clutch MSM defense led 
by Cook, LeBlanc, Moore, Simmons, 
Fletcher, Brown, and Westmore- 
land was the real key to the 
'"*^1SM victory.

To Save A People 



by Taylor Caffery 
On Wednesday, Nov. 3, Cen- 
tenary students will participate 
in a nation-wide effort aimed at 
helping the nine million East 
Pakistani refugees now in India. 
The NOVEMBER 3 FAST TO SAVE A 
PEOPLE, involving a massive 
fundraising campaign coupled 
with an attempt to return the 
critical situation in West Ben- 
gal and other refugee areas to • 
the awareness of the public, 
will be co-ordinated on campus 
by the MSM Steering Committee. 
Rock and folk music groups 
are scheduled to perform in front 

Halloween 
Party 

All Campus Weekend will 
get underway today at 2 p.m 
with a Beer 'n Bicycle Race at 
fraternity row. Other Halloween 
treats in store are a UFO presen- 
tation, Drew Hunter's Mysterious 
Happenings , horror movies , a 
powder puff football game, 
contests , barbershop and 
folk singing, and a Satur- 
day night costume dance, 
with prizes . 

The weekend schedule 
is printed in the calendar 
on page eight. Rick Clark, 
Mary Ann Garrett, and 
other students, along with 
Student Activities Director 
Steve Holt, have been 
energetically whipping up 
enthusiasm for the weekend.

of the cafeteria during meal hours 
(11:30 to 1:30 and 5:00 to 6:30) 
Wednesday, and city TV and 
newspaper reporters will be on 
hand. Anyone desiring to play 
music for the event, or help in 
other ways , should contact 
Cherry Payne at 869-5512. 

The idea behind the fund 
raising is that students and 
other people will donate the money 
which could otherwise have gone 
for a meal to the relief project, 
to aid genuinely hungry masses . 
The fast is a symbolic act to 
help gather support . 

The MSM Steering Committee 
issued the following statement : 
"It is shocking and dismay- 
ing that what has happened and is 
still happening in part of the 
world should have passed so quick- 
ly from the nation's public forums 
of discussion, and out of the con- 
sciousness of the average citizen. 
The refugees from East Pakistan 
were victims of a devastating 
cyclone last November which 
claimed half a million lives 
and effectively removed the year's 
food crop, and then, in March, 
of an eruption of civil strife 
which resulted in the violent 
deaths of another quarter mil- 
lion people. These events pre- 
cipitated a massive exodus of 
terrified East Pakistani citi- 
zens out of their country and 
into neighboring India, where 
their present number, nine mil- 
lion, is enlarged by thirty 
thousand daily. They are crow- 
ded into makeshift camps whose 
facilities are most generously 
described as extremely inade- 



quate ; in many cases , the camps 
serve merely as grisly arenas 
in which starvation and disease 
end the long journey arbitrari- 
ly for thousands of people. 

"When she opened her borders 
to the refugees, India automati- 
cally made a commitment of one 
billion dollars for their care. 
This is an intolerable strain 
upon India's very limited re- 
sources , especially in view of 
the fact that she faces possible 
famine herself in the area of 
West Bengal province due to 
crop loss from monsoon flooding.

EDITORIAL 



Everybody's agreed, it seems. Centenary's Student Government 
Constitution is much too complex, tbo labyrinthian, for our small 
college community. Tilings don't get done, often, because the tan- 
gling constitutional bureaucracy permits shuffling feet, excuses, 
buck passing. (Exceptions to this have occurred when certain indi- 
viduals have broken free of the snarled red tape, accomplishing most 
of what's ever accomplished hereabouts.) 

It's a problem that most people who come into contact with the 
Senate, the SGA, and the various committees, spot right away. "This 
is plain dumb," they'll say. "How do they get anything done when 
nobody can spit without checking with the parliamentarian?" The 
answer is obvious .. .they don't. Because of the unwieldy governmental 
structures (and that old bugaboo, personalities), the Ellender visit, 
Freshman Election speeches, Referendum result reporting, and campus 
publicity, have been either dropped, put-off, or flubbed just this 
semester. 

Somewhere in the works, we're told, is a constitutional revision. 
Until the proposed new set of rules surfaces in the system's Sargasso 
sea, we humbly submit our own suggested constitution: 

The Centenary Student Government, hereby declared to be the 
representative arm acting upon the will of the student body, 
shall consist of two senators from each class, plus a presi- 
dent, a vice-president, a secretary, and a treasurer. The 
Government, following civilized rules of conduct, shall at- 
tempt to do those things which student governments usually 
attempt. Whether we overstep our bounds shall be decided 
each Spring semester by honest popular election of members, 
by the student body. 

Oversimplified? Perhaps. Our letters column, we hasten to 
remind you, is a good place to suggest something better.

Halloween 



From Page One 

The following communica- 
tion appeared mysteriously 
in the CONGLOMERATE office 
this week, from artist-maniac 
Drew Hunter: "Much suspicion 
has been afoot as to exactly 
what the "mysterious happenings" 
will consist of in the SUB 
Friday night. As organizer 
of one segment of that evening, 
I have been the recipient of 
numerous telephone calls this 
past week, not to mention 
personal contacts , inquiring 
whether or not I will conduct 



a seance. To those people 
who want one, I recommend 
you talk to someone who has 
experienced one. Also, I 
realize there are some people 
who are against a seance being 
held. To those people, my 
suggestion is that you may -- 
I said "may" --be sorry you 
stayed away from whatever will 
go on in the SUB at 7:30. 
And to those who do insist on 
visiting the SUB Friday night, 
may I wish you an enjoyable 
evening, a good night's rest, 
and above all, pleasant dreams. 



Speaker's 
Corner 

The concert that awed the masses this summer was by request 
of a friend. Ravi Shankar, the gentleman who introduced the sitar 
to our generation, approached George Harrison concerning the pos- 
sibility of a benefit concert to raise money for the refugees of 
his nation, Bengla Desh (translation-Bengal Nation: the name 
given to East Pakistan upon the declaration of their independence 
in March of this year) . Harrison responded by giving two Sunday 
concerts at Madison Square Gardens under the auspices of "George 
Harrison and His Friends." What resulted was a meeting of the 
"Great Masters" of rock music- -George Harrison, along with Bob 
Dylan, Ringo Starr, and others such as Ravi Shankar, Eric Clapton, 
Leon Russell, and Billy Preston. Throughout the concert, neither 
the musicians nor the audience lost sight of the reason for their 
meeting. For his encore, George Harrison sang the song he had 
composed especially for the occasion: 

"My friend came to me with sadness in his eyes 

Told me that he wanted help 

Before his country dies. 

Although I couldn't feel the pain 

I knew I had to try 

Now I'm asking all of you 

To help save some lives. 

Bengla Desh, Bengla Desh." 
What is there left to say or do when a country, within one 
year, loses 700,000 of her people to the combination of a cyclone, 
tidal wave, and civil war; and, within that same year, loses a 
little less than ten million people to her neighboring country, In- 
dia, because of the scarcity of food within her own boundaries. 

I feel as though nothing can duplicate the uniqueness of 
Harrison's benefit concert, but we here at Centenary have the 
opportunity to participate in something equally as great in meaning 
and as immense in scope. On Wednesday, Nov. 3, our college com- 
munity has the opportunity to join other campuses across the coun- 
try in a nation-wide fast. Participation in the fast is purely 
symbolic, but the results are definitely far- reaching and concrete. 
By abstaining from meals on that day, one will be able to donate 
the money previously allotted for those meals to help feed the 
displaced persons of Bangla Desh. 

On-Campus Weekend may prove to be as equally entertaining as 
the concert held at Madison Square Garden this summer; but what 
will be occurring here on Wednesday, Nov. 3, will most definitely 
rate in a separate category by itself, unlike anything that has 
every been attempted locally on this campus, or nationally across 
the count ry. 

What is there left to say or do? George Harrison wrote a 
song- -maybe we can write our song, too.

CONGLOMERATE 



Fast 

From Page One 

Outside aid is desperately 
needed, and unless generous a- 
mounts of it are forthcoming, it 
is generally feared that a sig- 
nificant fraction of the refu- 
gees will starve to death, or die 
of exposure and the attendant di- 
seases, during the coming winter. 
If that is allowed to happen, 
it will have been the most disas- 
trous human catastrophe in 
modem history. 

'THE NOVEMBER 3 FAST TO 
SAVE A PEOPLE is designed to 
focus national attention upon 
these shocking facts. On that 
Wednesday, the students of our 
nation's high schools and col- 
leges are being urged to skip 
one or all of the day's meals, 
and donate the money thus saved 
to the relief operation. It is 
hoped that an enormous amount 
of money will be raised, so 
that the FAST day may stand as 
a true, unprecendented people- 
to-people relief experiment. 
So that the community at large 
might follow their example in 
observing the FAST, it is 
necessary that the students ' 
participation be as close as 
possible to universal. 

'The effectiveness with 
which money donated to the 
relief effort is converted into 
tangible necessities for the 
refugees is startling: all 
money collected during the FAST 
will go directly to Oxfam's 
Field Director in India, where 
a dollar can provide one refu- 
gee for an entire month with 
supplementary high-nutrient foods, 
multivitamins, powdered milk, 
medicines, sanitation services, 
basic clothing, corrugated 
plastic shelters, and tarpaulins. 
Oxfam has many years of experi- 
ence in development work in 
India and was well established in 
the provinces around East Paki- 
stan when the refugees first 
began to pour across . Working 
closely with local Indian groups , 
Oxfam has achieved an exceptional 
reputation within the relief 
effort for the efficient manage- 
ment of funds and for the produc- 
tion of a maximum of relief for 
each dollar donated. No adminis- 
trative costs will be deducted 
from the proceeds of THE NOVEMBER 
5 FAST TO SAVE A PEOPLE. Every 
penny will go to the camps in 
India. 

"Checks payable to The 
November 3 Fast,' or cash, or 
any questions you may have can 
be brought to Tom Mussleman, 
Cherry Payne, John Hardt, and 
other :-BM Steering Committee 
Members . 

"A fast is, of course, a 
symbolic act. It can serve to 
make dramatically clear on a 
personal level what prolonged 
hunger can do to a human being. 
And it is admirably suited to 



SUB Progress Report 



The steering committee for 
the SUB Project held its first 
meeting on Tuesday, October 26 
at 1:00 p.m. in the Centenary 
Room of the Cafeteria. The 
purpose of this meeting was to 
establish organizational pro- 
cedures. In attendance were 
Mr. Parker, Mr. Evans, Mr. Vetter 
Rick Clark, Mark McMurry, 
Dena Taylor, Bill Allums, 
and Dean Miller. Absent 
were Peggy Holland, Pam 
Sargent and Mac Thomas . 

Three internal commit- 
tees were appointed: 
Communications, Design and 
Construction, and Financing. 
The Conmunications Committee 
consists of Pam Sargent, 
Mac Thomas, Mark McMurry, 
and Dena Taylor, with Eddie 
Vetter as the advisor. The 
Design and Construction 
Committee consists of Peggy 
Holland with Edmond M. Parker 
as advisor. Members of the 
Financing Committee advised 
by Evans include Rick Clark 
and Bill Allums. 

There are at least eight 
different dimensions of the 
project which will be taken 
into consideration. These 
dimensions include: theme, 
activities, floor plan design 
and decorations, furnishings, 
building code restrictions, 
financing, food service 
operations, and construction. 
It will be the responsibility 
of the Communications Committee 
to keep the members of the 
campus community informed of 
the progress of the project and 
to determine their ideas 
relative to these dimensions. 
The Design and Construction 
Committee will be responsible 
for translating the ideas 
collected by the communications 
committee into actual designs 
to be incorporated in the 
renovation. Obtaining the 




necessary means to pay for the 
project will be the responsibility 
of the Financing Committee. 

Several ideas were mention*d 
in relation to all aspects of the 
project and the following time 
tables were proposed: All plan- 
ning is to be completed before 
actual renovation is begun. 
A tentative date for completion 
of the planning phase will be 
March 1, 1972. Construction 
should begin immediately 
thereafter and should be 
completed no later than 
April 19, 1972. The chances 
are very good that both plan- 
ing and construction will be 
completed prior to these 
respective dates. The time 
table for the month of Novem- 
ber will go as follows: 

Tues., Nov. 2 .- Communications 
Committee will have planned 
ways of communicating with 
students . 



Tues., Nov. 9 - Communications 
Committee will have obtained 
students' ideas as to theme. 
Decision will be made on 
theme . 

Tues., Nov. 16 - Communications 
Committee will have obtained 
students' ideas as to ac- 
tivities. Decision will be 
made on activities. 

Tues., Nov. 23 - Open date. 

Additional planning as needed 

Tues., Nov. 30 - Open date. 

Additional planning as needed 



During the month of November 
the Financing Committee and the 
Design and Construction Committee 
will meet and report regularly 
regarding their progress . 
Opportunities to participate will 
be communicated to students at 
appropriate times throughout the 
planning and construction stages.

Interim Guide 
Update 

The Registrar's Office has 
informed the CONGLOMERATE that 
an official Interim guide has 
not been issued due to difficul- 
ties in acquiring course descrip- 
tions from the various depart- 
ments. "Should I ever be fur- 
nished with descriptions of the 
courses," Mrs. Zama Russell 
said, "I would be more than 
happy to give them to anyone 
who needs them." 

Addenda: 

GOVERNMENT 1-99 

Political Extremism: The 
Radical Right . For students who 
wish to explore the ideologies and 
workings of the more conservative 
element of American society, 
the Government Department is 
offering Political Extremism : The 
Radical Right . The course is 
structured into three study areas. 
During the first week the students 
will discuss the history and at- 
tiiudes of the right wing. A 
basic textbook will be utilized 
to acquire the general back- 
ground. Mr. Wesley Garvin, in- 
structor of the course , pointed 
out that for the second' week, 
which will focus on discussion 
of individual rightist groups, 
field trips to Dallas and Tus- 
caloosa, Ala. , headquarters of 
the Ku Klux Klan, are tentative- 
ly planned. Speakers from the 
different societies may also 
speak on campus to the class. 
In the last week of the course 
each student will report on one 
of the right wing groups. 

MUSIC 1-99 

Seminsr In Music For Piano 
Teachers . The music teacning se- 
minar is designed to cover a broad 
range of musical materials which 
would have practical value for 
the private studio piano teacher. 
The course will cover theory (ba- 
sic principles, teaching materi- 
al, ear-training), history (style, 
and historical background) and 
private piano lesson work. 
There will be four master

reminding the public of what 

the news media have partially 
forgotten: that the situation 
in the area of Bengal has not 
dissipated, but has in fact 

grown more critical. It is 
expected that a successful FAST 
on Nov. 3 will trigger a nation- 
wide response , whose form might 
be individual and collective 
efforts to raise money and to 
resurrect the issue as headline 
news: artists, musicians, edu- 
cators, clergy, all Americans 
of means or talent may take their 
cue from the student action and 
donate whatever services are 
characteristic of their profes- 
sions ." 



Homecoming Activities 
To Be Held Dec. 4 



Alumni Director Bob Holla- 
day has announced that Home- 
coming will be held Saturday, 
Dec. 4, which will be the date 
of our second home game. 

The Alumni Office has mailed 
letters to alumni inviting them 
to town for the festivities. 
Speaking Wednesday before the 
Student Senate, llolladay said 
that Homecoming should not be 
just for the alumni. "We're 
trying to get students involved, 
too." He added that 'We'll 
do all we can to help you have 
a good time." 

The Senate, discussing 
Homecoming, pointed out that 
Dec. 4 occurs the weekend 



fore dead week, when most 
fraternities schedule their 
Christmas parties . Since the 
Homecoming date is already 
set, and student participa- 
tion will be necessary for its 
success, the senators will 
meet Wednesday at 5:15 p. m. 
in the Cafeteria Green Room 
to consider making Friday, 
Dec. 3 a school holiday, so 
that Homecoming and Christmas 
events could commence on Thurs- 
day night. 

The Senate will also con- 
sider alloting twenty - fi ve 
dollars to each fraternity to 
help offset Homecoming decora- 
tion expenses.

To Be Presented Wednesday 



Soccer 

Dear Editor: 

The first fully organi 
soccer season in Shreveport 
starts on Nov. 8. Centenary 
is a member of the newly formed 
Shreveport Soccer League so we 
have to field a team to play 
against the other members of 
the League. You don't require 
eny previous experience to 
join the Centenary team, just 
a good pair of legs and the 
desire to practice a wonder- 
ful sport. Practices will be 
held at Hardin Field this Fri- 
day afternoon and Yonday, 
Wednesday and Friday of next 
week at 3 p. m. We have only 
one week to put a team together 
so let's get down to work. 
Thanks;

and other activities to be held 
during the 10:40-11:25 hour on 
Thursdays when that time has 
not been filled or held tenta - 
tively open by the Committee on 
Campus Assemblies. 

This is a modification of a 
Faculty regulation that was 
passed Jan. 26, 1970, and en- 
dorsed by the Student Senate 
shortly thereafter. It is in- 
tended to relieve some or the 
pressure on the Tuesday "break" 
hour while preserving most of 
the Thursday hours for programs 
sponsoted by the Committee on 
Camous Assemblies. 

The schedule for these pro- 
grams will continue to be is- 
sued by the office of Chaplain 
Robert Ed Taylor at the begin- 
ning of each semester. 

Members of the campus com- 
munity are once again urged to 
attend these nrograms , during 
which they can hear outside 
speakers, lectures by Faculty 
members on subjects of contem- 
porary interest, and special 
music nrograms .

Thaddeus Brys, a native New 
Yorker now teaching cello at 
Louisiana State University at 
Baton Rouge, will be presented 
in a guest recital at the Music 
Building Auditorium Wednesday, 
Nov. 3, at 8:00 p. m. 

In addition to his teaching 
duties at L. S. U. Mr. Brys 
maintains a busy schedule as a 
soloist and chamber player. He 
will be accompanied here by 
pianist Susan Poore Brys. 

He received his training at 
the Mannes College of Music and 
at Juilliard in New York and has 
coached with Pablo Casals in Pad- 
res, France and Marlboro, Ver- 
mont. 

In addition to solo tours in 
the united States, Canada, Mexico, 
and the leading cities of Europe, 
Mr. Brys has been soloist with 
many of the leading orchestras of 
the South. 

Critics have spoken of his 
"melifuous expansive tone . . . 
musicianship impeccable" (London 
Telegraph) , of his ability as a 
"sensitive artist of refreshing 
musical maturity" (New York 
Times) , and praise his "singing 
tone ... a real lyric indi- 
vidualist" (Algemeen Dagblad, 
Amsterdam) . 



Mr. Brys' recital is open 
to the public without charge.

More St. Augustine Grass, 
Fewer Trees Dot Campus 



by Ellen Misch 
Every Centenary student is 
proud of his campus, and with 
good reason, as it is one of the 
most beautiful campuses in the 
country, and certainly in the 
South. One of the principal 
causes of this is that our grounds 
are under the watchful eye of Mr. 
H. E. Raney, Superintendent of 
Grounds and Maintenance. 

"I 've been here since this 
was a mudhole," chuckled 
Mr. Raney. In the twenty years 
he has been at Centenary, he 
has supervised the laying of 
sidewalks, planting of the 
beautiful azaleas, the sodding 
of bare earth with St. Augustine 
grass (this type of grass covers 
801 of our campus) , and many 
other landscaping projects . 

Suprisingly, Mr. Raney has 
no regular grounds crew to give 
the campus the constant attention 
it deserves. "We used to have a 
regular crew, but now we have to 
use two men from the warehouse 
to do the necessary jobs," he 
revealed. These men work the 
grounds when they have time off 
from their warehouse duties. Only 
the essential tasks can be done, 
and as a result some plants suffer. 

Four trees were cut down 
recently because of this . 
"Sometimes a bulldozer will 
damage a tree [as during 
Hamilton Hall construction}, 



other times a tree will get 
too much water. Some of 
them are just plain dead -- 
you know, dead from old age," 
remarked Mr. Raney, "but we 
do the best and the most we 
can with the little manpower 
we have." 

This week the crew has 
been working on Crumley 
Gardens, and Frost Garden 
in front of the SUE.sB.'Jlie iob

is a general fall clean-up, 
and entails weeding, pruning, 
and fertilizing the azaleas with 
a compost of leaves and pine 
straw. Chemical fertilizing 
is done twice a year. 

Considering the fact that 
Mr. Raney has such a small 
working force (one man in the 
summer and two men during the 
school year) , he has done 
an adequate job of making and 
keeping Centenary's campus 
as attractive as it deserves.

More Hamilton Hall Papers 



by Kathy Parrish 

The Comptroller of 
Centenary College, Mr. C. L 
Perry, supervises a great 
number of the workings of the 
institution. His main duty 
is total business management 
including: (1) properties of 
the college, (2) endowment 
funds, (3) receipts, (4) expen- 
ditures of funds, (S) accounting, 

(6) inventory of campus, 

(7) maintenance, (8) food service, 
(9) bookstore, and (10) post 
office. The endowment funds 
involve stocks, bonds, houses, 
land and miscellaneous requests. 
One example of money going through 
this office is the Bath Scholar- 
ship for a foreign student. The 
college owns stock in many 
companies including Eli Lilly, 

oil companies, and railroads.' 
Land given to the college is not 
only in Louisiana, but also in 
Texas and Oklahoma. Receipts of 
all bequests and gifts go through 
this office. A budget for the 
receipt and expenditure of funds 
is recommended by the President 
of the college to the Board of 
Trustees. Mr. Perry is 
responsible for final reports 
to the Federal Government, 
as well as, to the Govern- 
ment agencies. This includes 
the reports on the construc- 
tion of the new Dome and 
Hamilton Hall recently 
completed. Delegation of 
powers also occurs from 
this office; resulting 
in Mr. Raney in maintenance, 
Mr. E. J. Williams in the 
food service, Mrs. Norman 
in the bookstore, and Mrs. 
Clark in the post office. 
Each month there is 
a meeting of Mr. Perry, 
Dr. Allen and members of 
the Endowment and Investment 
committee with a representative 
from Scudder, Stevens and Clark, 
an investment counseling firm 
in Dallas . Stocks and bonds 



owned by the college are held 
in security in the Commercial 
National Bank vault. Four 
individuals are authorized by 
the Board of Trustees to enter, 
the vault to take care of the 
necessary matters connected 
with the holdings. At least 
two of the four must be present 
for the vault to be entered. 
They are: The Chairman of the 
Board, Mr. George Nelson, 
the President, Dr. Allen, the 
Comptroller, Mr. Perry, and 
the Assistant Comptroller, 
Mr. Arrington. The comptroller's 
office receives frequent calls 
from the Financial Centers 
throughout the country concerning 
college holdings and investments. 
Correspondence of the office 
is handled very capably by Mrs . 
Liz Waite, Mr. Perry's secretary. 
These letters deal with invest- 
ments, bills, purchases, and 
expenditures. The insurance 
and hospitalization program of 
the college is handled through 
this office . Periodic reports 
to the FICA and other Federal 
programs also are handled by 
the Comptroller's staff. The 
payroll of the college is 
handled by Mr. Arrington, 
Assistant Comptroller. 

Mr. Arrington also has 
charge of keeping accounts of 
the current operating funds, 
all endowment funds , current 
restricted funds , and agency 
funds . He too prepares 
reports for the Federal govern- 
ment. Other reports come from 
his office going to all depart- 
ments of the college, the 
president, and the state. These 
reports pertain to finances 
and operations . He also has 
the responsibility of tabulation 
and computation of student 
charges, tuition and fees, at 
the first of each semester. 
By being in charge of the payroll 
he ends up signing numerous 



checks, but he also has to file 
reports with the Federal govern- 
ment in regard to deductions, 
such as social security, income 
tax, retirement, and group 
insurance. All the revenue of 
the college is under his direct 
supervision. This money includes 
student tuition and fees, and 
dividends and interest on 
investments. Mr. Arrington also 
maintains the college portfolio 
on endowments, which in essence 
is a listing of the investments 
held by the college. 

His daily duties consist of 
keeping the business office in 
good working order. The classi- 
fication of an invoice into the 
account from which it is to be 
paid, and the approval of 
student refunds and student loans 
are also under his jurisdiction. 
The student loans were set up 
by funds for this specific 
purpose by the Nuttal family. 
A short-term loan up to $25.00, 
without interest, payable within 
fifteen days is first approved 
by the Dean of Students then 
by Mr. Arrington. Most of his 
correspondence concerns student 
accounts. He oversees the 
general functions and activities 
of the bookstore and the post 
office. He also helps in the 
preparation of the budget. 
The receipts, files, posted 
checks, and ledgers are kept 
in order by this office. 
Mr. Arrington is responsible 
for all the cash that comes 
into the office along with 
the everyday running of the 
business aspect of the 
institution. A great deal 
of time is spent answering 
questions, either via 
telephone or personal visit, 
pertaining to budget 
allottment, student accounts, 
insurance and salary problems. 
Mr. Perry, however, is the 
man ultimately in charge of 
business transactions. 



Volunteer Service Committee 
Schedules Next Workday 



by Tom Guerin 
The Volunteer Service Commit- 
tee met Tuesday's break and 
discussed several items. Given 
the amount of work to be done 
on the Park, and to revive Stu- 
dent interest in the project, 
it was suggested that another 
workday should be held as soon 
as possible. November 6 was se- 
lected and announcements will go 
up during next week. The com- 
mittee has secured some 200 
feet of utility poles for 
swings , fences and climbing 
apparatus and purchased 100 
feet of chain to block off 
the drive through the lot to 
stop the dumping of trash. 
Post holes must be dug and posts 
cut for this operation. All 
needed material for a swing 
set is also available and 
ready to be set up. The 
task of collecting debris is 
still at hand. Plans call 
for the collection of trash, 
to be deposited in a city 
sanitation truck instead of 
Dr. Guerin's van. The other 
items of business concerned 
our appeal to the Centenary 
student body by a friend 
of the chairman for an effort 
to help the retired couple who 
own and operate Peyton's Double - 
Dip ice cream parlor on South- 
ern Avenue. Acceptance of this 



project is under consideration 
by the committee. The con- 
tact has said that the arrange- 
ment could entail the planning 
and actual remodeling of the 
building to achieve a more at- 
tractive setting. A local com- 
merical artist and Centenary 
grad, Drew Hunter,, has ex- 
pressed interest in undertaking 
the project. The recompensa- 
tion to the student body would 



be a 1/3 discount on all pur- 
chases made by a Centenary sty- 
dents who present their ID's at 
time of purchase. Another pos- 
sible benefit would be the open- 
ing of several jobs to Cen- 
tenary students in the opera- 
tion of the business. Anyone 
interested in this project 
should contact Wendy Waller at 
865-6834 or Tom Guerin at 
5595, Cline. 



Student Senate Notes 



The Student Senate met 
Wednesday at 5:15 p. m. in the

vice organization's financial 
troubles. 

The senators also commen- 
ded Rick Clark and Mary Ann Gar- 
rett for their work on All Cam- 
pus Halloween Weekend. 

Freshman Senator Jeff Hen- 
dricks will prepare an article 
for next week's CONGLOMERATE 
outlining new liberalization of 
parking regulations, and looking 
into campus parking problems , 



past and future. 

Senior Senator Linda

Folklore Group 
To Perform 

An "Evening of Southern and 
Appalachian Folklore" with Dick 
and Anne Alb in of THE HOUSE OF AT- 
REUS has been scheduled at the SUB 
Sunday, Oct. 31, 8:30-10:30 p. m., 
closing out All Campus Halloween 
Weekend . 

The program is sponsored by 
the Concert and Lecture Committee 
of the College. 

The Kentucky based music/ 
theatre company will perform a 
concert of folktales, supersti- 
tions, home remedies, and folk- 
lore indigenous to the southern 
and Appalachian regions. 

They accompany their songs 
with a variety of instruments 
including autoharp, jew harp, 
guitar, and home-made dulcimers. 
The blend of instruments creates 
an atmosphere similar to the one 
out of which the songs developed 
and the concert itself has the 
feeling of a front porch song 
sharing session. 

All the material for the 
folklore concert is traditional. 
The concert is built around 'the 
lives and life styles of the 
early settlers of the region. 
The things important to them-- 
love *and marriage, superstition 
and death, entertainment and 
humor- -are used as a basis for 
the concert. 

Dick and Anne began The House 
of At reus as a performing and 
booking company two years ago. 
They have played colleges and 
universities across the country 
since that time. In addition 
they have travelled in Arkan- 
sas for a local Title III 
project and have toured nationally 
as part of the National Humani- 
ties Series and were selected 
to perform as part of the 33rd. 
National Folk Festival. 

Both of the Albins build and 
play the Mountain Dulcimer and 
make use of several of them in 
their concerts. As well as 
performing Appalachian music, 
they Vrite and perform their 
own songs in their Coffee 
House concert. 



Special ticket sales for 
student and faculty ,at all up- 
coming regular Playhouse produc- 
tions will be held the day be- 
fore city-wide ticket sales 
'open, from four until six 
p. m., Junior Senator Sally 
Word announced Wednesday at the 
Student Senate meeting. 

The special sales policy was 
accomplished by the Student 
Senate, in requesting Play- f 
house director Robert Buseick Jn. 
to set aside a special time^JW^ 
,for students and faculty to^Y^V 
acquire tickets prior to the Jn\ 
official box office opening. *'" 
At past productions, students 
have complained that, though 
instructed to see a certain 
play (such as "Romeo $ Juliet") 
for a course paper or discussion, 
tickets were unobtainable.

by Dean Whiteside 
The Louisiana State Fair 
crowd didn't interest me as I 
drove through the entrance to the 
grounds. In the parking lot 
they looked like baseball or 
football fans as they yawned and 
umbled to each other. But once 
out of the darkness of the park- 
ing lot and under the midway 
lights, they appeared different. 
it may have been the hypnotic 
ipell of the flash, flicker and 
;lare of many-colored, many-shaped 
reon lights. Whatever the 
ase, their eyes seemed glazed 
is they wandered like rats in a 
;kinner Box. The maze of midway 
ittractions drew them from one 
stall or contraption to another, 
md few seemed to wonder why. 

People got taken in by games 
if chance for prizes thev did not

Recent Abortion Survey 



--New York City. A survey 
of out-patient abortion faci- 
lities indicates that the costs 
of obtaining a legal abortion 
for the early termination of 
pregnancy have declined sharply 
since New York State's liberal- 
ized laws went into effect in 
July, 1970. 

The survey, conducted by the 
Council on Abortion Research P, 
Education, revealed that current 
costs, exclusive of transporta- 
tion, range from $125 to 5200 
for legal abortions up to 
twelve weeks of pregnancy. When 
the law came into being and 
for some time thereafter, costs 
ranged from $300 to $600 and 
in many cases were substantially 
higher. 

According to Richard Roman, 
executive director of the non- 
profit Council, several inter- 
related factors have contributed 
to the sharp decline in costs: 
the competitive economies fos- 
tered by the growth in the number 
of out-patient abortion facili- 
ties ; the elimination of profit- 
making abortion referral agen- 
cies whose services added sig- 
nificantly to the actual costs 
of the medical services; and, 
the increased volume of legal 
abortions which has enabled out- 
patient facilities to operate 
at a lower cost per patient in 
regard to fixed operating ex- 
rjenses . 

The survey was based on in- 
formation from some twenty out- 
patient facilities operating 
in the New York City area. It 
was undertaken as part of the 
Council's overall efforts to 
provide information and assis- 
tance to women seeking legal 
abortions performed by board 
certified gynecologists under 
quality medical care conditions. 
Another recent Council poll 
indicated widespread public 
approval of legal abortions , 

The poll was conducted by 
the Council as part of its re- 
search and education activities 
and to further its efforts to 
provide information and assis- 
tance regarding legal abortion. 
According to Roman, the poll is 
believed to be the first of its 
kind since the liberalization in 
July 1970 of New York State's 
abortion law. 

The polls were mailed to 
about 1,700 women's news editors 
and some 900 editors of college 
publications throughout the 
United States. In certain cases, 
the editors ran the poll in their

legal abortions across the coun- 
try. RESPONSES: (a) 23.5%, 
(b) 11.8%, (c) 18.1%, (d) 13.4%, 
(e) 4.5%, (f) 19.4%, (g) 9.3%. 

According to Roman, the pre- 
liminary results of the poll in- 
dicate clearly that the public 
is overwhelmingly in support of 
at least some type of legal abor- 
tion; that there appears to be a 
need and desire for information 
about legal abortion; that the 
public is generally unaware or 
misinformed about the status of 
legal abortion; and that local 
physicians and medical societies 
and non-profit abortion infor- 
mation and education organiza- 
tions are the sources most pre- 
ferred as dispensers of such 
information. 

Roman also indicated that 
the Council is planning to pub- 
lish more detailed results of the 
poll in the near future. These 
would include a breakdown and 
analysis of the results ac- 
cording to the age, sex, race, 
religion, education, marital 
status, and geographical back- 
ground of the respondants. 

The Council is located at 
342 Madison Avenue in New York 
City.

"pledge kidnap" Saturday, Oct. 23. 
The pledges spent Friday night 
with their big sisters in the so- 
rority and were rudely awakened 
at 5:00 a. m. The blindfolded 
pledges were taken to James Dorm, 
and from there the group sped on 
its way to Six Flags Over Texas , 



located at Arlington, Tex. The 
day was loaded with fun and 
excitement for everyone . Mrs . 
.Abraham Gonzalez of Dallas fed 
the weary Alpha Xi's. A Treasure 
Hunt followed the dinner, with 
keys to the Alpha Xi lodge being 
the treasure for the pledges at 
the end of the hunt. Then every- 
one went to two other members '

Recipe 
Corner 

Yogurt 

To make top quality yogurt, 
the only necessary ingredients 
are milk and a small bit of 
store -bought yogurt. 

First , heat one quart of mi Ik 
to boiling. Using a thermome- 
ter, let the milk cool to 114- 
117 degrees f. 

Then, all that must be done 
is to add (stirring well) one 
teaspoon of fresh PLAIN commer- 
cial yogurt (or a packaged yo- 
gurt culture), and keep the mix- 
ture at 114 - 117 degrees for 
four to five hours. 

The final incub.it i S s 
is usually done in a yogurt ma- 
ker especially designed to 
maintain a constant temperatu 
However, a yogurt incubator may 
be improvised by pouring the 
quart of yogurt-to-be into four 
one -cup containers, I 
the containers in a small closed 
box (shoebox, big cigar box, 
etc.), with a single small light 
bulb of the Christmas tree va- 
riety in there to keep them 
warm. (Bulb must be plugged-in, 
of cours" . ) 

Yogurt should be flavored 
(use concentrated fruit juice, 
natural flavorings, honey, 
wheat germ, even peanut butter) 
only just before serving. 

It also is excellent as a 
salad dressing. 

Students Visit

Juniors Randy Oberlag and

Fresh Earth Foods 



by Patti Overstreet 

Remember when eating heal- 
thilv meant the exclusion of 
anything pleasantly sinful? 
Well, forget the way it used to 
be. Take a hike down to 1304 
Centenary'; you'll find that 
sinning isn't the only way to 
live well. 

The idea of alfalfa sprouts, 
dried beans and soy milk may 
take some getting used to (I'll 
admit it did for me) , but the 
culinary artists at Fresh Earth 
Foods perform peculiar magic. 
Somehow, under their beginner's 
expertise, the simple becomes 
the exotic. 

Within walking distance- - 
if you're not afraid of using 
your legs --the restaurant has 
been open since July. The 
proprietors --a jeans -clad couple 
migrated from California --will 
confess to you that business 
has been a bit slow in Shreve- 
port . "But we enjoy what we're 
doing," they said. "We believe 
in it. We make enough to live 
on, and we don't have to work 
for anyone else." 

Listening to them, I thought 
I could understand their enthu- 
siasm. Eating in their res- 
taurant is like being invited 
to a friend's home for dinner. 
I had the feeling that business 
wasn't business any longer; it 
was pure pleasure. 

Unless you're really ac- 
quainted with organic foods, 
it's difficult to believe how 
good they can actually be. 
Speciality of the house at Fresh 
Earth Foods is the Earth Sand- 
wich—avocado, olives, mush- 
rooms, tomato and alfalfa 
sprouts on a whole-wheat roll. 
It not only tastes spectacular; 
there's plenty of it. 

In the sandwich line, you 
can choose vegetable combina- 
tions or peanut, cashew, sesame 
or aliiiond uiitter with iioncy and 
bananas . "Smoothies"- -super- 
rich shakes flavored with a vari- 
ety of fruit juices and sometimes 
including nuts, coconut, dates 

igh -protein extras- -are more 
a meal in themselves. Vou 
Lety of tea 
m the shelf stock, you can 
stick with fruit and vegetable 
ible with 
soy milk. Mot casseroles, beans, 

ids 
complete the menu. Prices, be- 
lieve it or not, are not on 
low; the> - 're doggone cheap. 

Af-ter lunch, I browsed 
ind the shelves, where most 

its, plus extras, 
nrreptitiously eye- 
ing prices, I found noth 
about which to complain . 
en on mv low budget (which 
leally low) . "We know 
what it's like to have to buy 
health foods," 1 was told later 

tie proprietors, who were 
ans long before they 
wen rant-owners.

juices and almond butter and teas, 
I found books, ranging from Adelle 
Davis' suggestions on nutrition 
to Rachel Carson's environmental 
bestseller Silent Spring . On 
one wall I noticed a poster ad- 
vertising the Afro -American Scene, 
with additional flyers stacked 
by the front windows which are 
decorated with giant hand-painted 
mushrooms. Walls, on the whole, 
are almost bare ; tables , few and 
scattered. Fresh Earth Foods 
doesn't flaunt atmosphere; it 
simply doesn't have to. 

The restaurant is open from 
10 a. m. till dark. Unfortunately 
it is closed on Sundays, though 
the owners are keeping an open 
mind about Sunday nights. Best 
of all, they don't mind deli- 
veries. "If you want a late 
sandwich," I was informed, "say, 
about 7 at night, just call and 
we'll drop it by campus." (Yeah, 
J thought. I can bet there'll 
be plenty of Wednesday night 
deliveries to a hungry CONGLOM- 
ERATE staff.) The phone number, 
by the way, is 422-9718. 

It's inexcusable but not 
really strange that the clien- 
telle of Fresh Earth Foods has 
included so few Centenary students. 
Our rut is so deep that it's 
become an abyss, hard to scramble 
out of. But do. And go. I 
guarantee it's worth it7 

Note: Earth Foods will 
open on next Sunday night, Nov. 7, 
for a Centenary Students' In- 
troductory Night. 104 off on

is claimed to be 100 per cent

New Gym, Holiday Tourney, New 
Opponents Highlight Cage Schedule 

The Centenary varsity cagers have been practicing diligently 
for two weeks now, and it is a good thing they are because they 
will once again face some of the leading teams of the area and 
of the nation. The opening of 

Owl's Angels Cop 



the new gym, the revival of 
the Shreveport Holiday Invita- 
tional Tournament, and five new 
opponents highlight the Gents' 
upcoming schedule. 

The Tournament will be held 
Dec. 29 and 30 with Trinity 
University, East Tennessee State, 
Northwestern Louisiana, and 
the Gents vying for honors . 

The five new opponents in- 
clude Louisiana State at New 
Orleans and Arkansas State on a 
home-and-home basis and single 
games with the University of 
Texas, Long Island University, 
and East Texas Baptist College. 

In addition to these, the 
Gents also renew old rivalries 
with games on a home-and-home 
basis with Lamar University, 
University of Texas at Arling- 
ton, Northwestern Louisiana, 
national power University of 
Houston, Hardin -Simmons Univer- 
sity, University of Southern 
Mississippi, and Loyola Univer- 
sity of New Orleans. Single 
engagements with the University 
of Hawaii and North Texas State 
round out the schedule.

WRA Volleyball 



Thursday, October 21, the 
Women's Volleyball Intramurals 
came to a close with Owl's 
Angels beating Independent 3 
for the championship. The 
members of the Chi Omega team 
are Emily Bruning, Sandy Bogucki, 
Carolyn Carlton, Lee Denoncourt, 
Suzanne Mason and Terry Riordan. 
They ended their playing schedule 
with a perfect record. 

Independent 3 took second 
place with Independent 1 and 
Alpha Xi Delta taking third 
and fourth, respectively. 

It was decided in WRA meeting 
Oct. 25, that this year there 
would be no sweepstakes awarded 
but only trophies given for the 
particular sport. This decision 
was made by the council , for it 
felt that there was too much 
negative competition for this 
award . 

The council also picked two ALL- 
STAR volleyball teams which 
played each other on Wedensday, 
Oct. 27. The council thought 
this would give players from 
different teams a chance to 
play one another. The members 
of this team are: Emily 
Bruning, Sandy Bogucki, 
Carolyn Carlton, Jan Conlin, 
Lee Denoncourt, Yolanda 
Gonzales , Netta Hares , Sandra 
Hilbum, Connie Johnson, Eileen 
Kleiser, Libby Lazarre, Terry 
Martin, Suzanne Mason, Vicki 
Owens, Missy Restarick, Terry 
•Riordan, Karen Schmit , and 
Vida Traylor.

with Gent co-captains , John Hickerjor and Melvin Russell, both juniors. 
Hickerson is from Bossier High School and Russell prepped at Shreve- 
port Woodlawn.

Student Activists Succeed 



by Carol Bickers 

Cafeteria lines were shorter 
and the hustle and bustle of 
lunch and dinner crowds were 
hushed Wednesday as over 275 Cen- 
tenary students participated in 
the FAST TO SAVE A PEOPLE. 

Over $450 was collected in 
this massive fundraising cam- 
paign to aid the East Pakistani 
• refugees . Earlier in the week 
Mr. E. J. Williams, cafeteria 
manager, had agreed to donate 
$1.30 for each student who 
signed a petition agreeing not 
to eat in the cafeteria at the 
lunch and dinner meals. Of the 
275 students signing the peti- 
tion over 200 agreed to skip 
both meals. Many students who 
participated in the fast were 
unable to sign the petition 
before the deadline and thus 
were not counted in this number. 
Cindy Brown, sophomore, noted 
that Williams ' action was in- 
strumental in getting students 
to participate in the nation- 
wide fundraising activity. 

A collection box was set up 
for students who did not wish to 
participate in the actual fast, 
but who nevertheless desired to 
donate to the Pakistani cause. 
While some students went to the 
cafeteria for a glass of water, 
others remained in their rooms /^^ 
during the lunch and dinner > *7 
hours . 

At noon, when students are 
usually heading for the cafe- 
teria, approximately 16 students 
were sitting on the grass in 
front of the building. As more 
students reached the cafeteria 
area, the number of participants 



increased. While the students 
sat on the grass in the warm 
sunshine, folk rock music was 
provided by George Hancock, wno 
played the flute, and David 
Leone and Steve Leenhouts, both 
of whom played the guitar. 

Several of the students 
and faculty participating in 
the fast offered their impres- 
sions of the fundraising cam- 
paign. 
John Hardt, sophomore: "The 




fast is our symbolic concern 
for people in need and a way 
of bringing attention to 
.the need over there. Our 
public has not been made 
fully aware of the circum- 
stances." 
Mary Ann Garrett, senior: "I 
think that it is good that 
Mr. Williams is giving the 
money and by him giving the 
money we are getting more 
people to participate than 
just by asking for donations." 
., Theresa McConnell, senior: "I 

think that what we are doing 
here today is merely symbolic 
of there being human need in 
the world and that even the 
lowliest of students can be 
of some help." 
Tran Minh Nhat, junior: "The 
fast is worthwhile because 
we just fast for one day and 
it doesn't hurt and we can 
save a lot of people through 

donations." m „

The Case For David Chandler 



It is doubtful that any one could conceive of the great 
number of gubernatorial aspirants who would throw themselves 
ar the voters of Louisiana during this election, and the even 
greater sameness in their campaigning. Refoim is the word this 
fall, whether the speaker is Edwards, Gillis Long, Jolinston, 
or any of the other candidates with the possible exception of 

imnie Davis. And some of the gimmicks which have been invented 
ro convey the "let's clean up state government" message have been 
■ ;uitc entertaining, the Jolin Schwegmann song and broom act being 
a prime example. 

he believe, however, that a true reform movement is going to 
be difficult for most of the major candidates, as they are vir- 
tually all backed by a large money interest . . . and that means 
commitments, ;ind that means reform is going to be hindered. Not 
that some of the candiates do not want to clean up the mess in 
the state capitol, but it is simply hard for men backed by the 
kind of money which some of them have been given to be effective 
in controlling 'the type of machines which have plagued this state 
for too lonq . . 

There is one candidate in the race who is not tied to big 
monev though, and that man is David Chandler, the pugnacious 
writer from New Orleans. David has seen fit to defy all existing 
tradition and run for a maior office on :i minor budget, to- 
filling a mere S9S0 in a game played with figures in the hundreds 
of thousand-. Despite- this financial handicap, he has put to- 
oether a strong campaign and lias become a serious candidate in 
this race while beholden to no one except those noeplc who have 
cone to him for a real change in state government. IVc think he 
could supplv that change. 

Methods which he would employ in affecting a governmental 
house cleaning would begin with a complete revision ot our 
multi-volume state constitution. There would be an end to the 
nork barrel projects in Louisiana such as the proposed north- 
south toll road'. And finally there would be Impeachment pro- 
ceedings initiated against those public officials who demon - 
st rated ;i reluctance to prosecute corrupt state officers. 

know that David will carry through with his promises --he demon- 
strated that lie is not to be intimidated by Louisiana's power elite 
when he exposed some of the blatantly illegal practices being carried 
out in 1969 --and we believe that he should be given his (and our) 
opportunity. Ke further believe that a vote for David Chandler is 
more than a "protest" vote. It is a vote cast for the refreshing 
type of powerful personality which lias been needed in Baton Rouge for 
-. Should enough Louisiana voters feel as we do, we can get that 
nality, and we ask that vou help in this effort tomorrow. Vote 
for David Chandler for Governor, lever number 4.

David Chandler 



To The Editor: 

As a proud member of the 
Libertarian (and thus, in today's 
context, "Extreme") Right, I must 
take umbrage at your paper's 
handling of Government 1-99, 
The Radical Right. 

Vou refer to such groups as 
"the more conservative element of 
American society"- -implying, there- 
fore, that all who hold "more 
conservative" political opinions 
are automatically Radical Right- 
ists. 

This is a malicious and im- 
mature slander on all American 
legitimate Conservatives. Even 
staunch anti -Radical Rightists 
such as Harry and Bonaro Over- 
street (co-authors, The Strange 
Tactics of Extremism) are care- 
ful to distinguish between those 
pathetic paranoids of the Radical 
Xight and true Conservatives., 
or even 'Extreme' Rightists. 
Vou certainly owe such intelligent 
and articulate mainstream Conser- 
vatives or Rightists such as Sena- 
tor James Buckley, Professor Lud- 
wig von Mises, Governor Ronald 
Reagan, and authoress Ayn Rand an 

ect apology. 
1 must also take exception to 
your placing the Ku Klux klan on 
the Right. This shows a definite 
lack of understanding of what the 
terms Right and Left actually 
mean. Remove the issue of race, 

1 in terms properly applicable 
to the Left-Right continuum, such 

Social Security, Medicare, farm 

iidies, federal aid to edu 
tion; evaluate your politicians 
in these legitimately Left-or- 
Right issues, and you will find 
Wallace and Humphrey to be vir- 
tual Siamese twins. Vour attempts 
to single out the Right as the 
sold depositor.- of the sad 
sickness of bigot ry is in no 



way appreciated- -especially 
since Karl Marx was a rabid blade-, 
baiter and virulently anti- 
Semitic. 

So how about living up to 
your usual fine standards of 
iournalistic integrity and apo- 
logizing to all the legitimate 
Conservatives , reactionaries , 
and, yes, even us laissez-faire 
adherents whom you saw fit to 
smear with your over- zealous 
brush, tarring us with the term 
"Radical Rightists"? 

Yours on the Right , 

Jeff Daiell 

Editor's Note: My news 
editor, who is a former vice- 
chairman of Louisiana Young 
Americans for Freedom, noted the 
statement in question while edi- 
ting the interim article, and let 
it stand. "The fact of the mat- 
ter," he says, "is that the Klan, 
Wallace, Goldwater, and Thurmond 
all have been supported at one 
time or another by various mem- 
bers of the vast 'conservative' 
constituency . Although it might 
be politic to embrace Goldwater 
as a ' responsible rightist' and 
write off Klan types as 'ir- 
responsible nuts,' to do so would 
be to fail to deal with the truth 
existent on the-Fight i that 
racists, bigots, and all sorts 
of nasties inhabit the fringe 
(Are the bigots only on the 
right? Ask the Black Panthers . ) 
As for the semantics of 'con- 
servative,' 'more conservative,' 
'right-wing ,' etc., phooey on it! 
In a time of revolutionary change , 
labels are merely tools of 'pro' 
and 'anti ' propagandists and 
media manipulators . In more 
peaceful times, these same labels 
are useless ."

Speaker's 
Corner 

To the student body of Centenary college: 

(c/o Editor of the CONGLONERATE) 

Initially, in response to numberous queries concerning 
the "all -campus" referendum, I would like to present the 
following gems: 

'There should be consistency in rules for women and men 

student 

"I think the SUB will remain in its present- lack of students 

no matter he* renovated unless beer is added " 

"Ke ought to catch up with the tijnes--prohibition was repealed 

40 years ago." 

Renovation of the SUB "couldn't hurt." 

Ihrmking on campus would "not help fill a need" but would 

"relieve tension."

Editor's Note: Tomorrow , we'll all know something . Until

Davis and Edwards were present. The following conversation re-

Hi Dave! 

Hello John! 

How are you, J. B.? 

Bennett ! 

Oh yes. 

Good afternoon, Frank. 

How are you on your $100 budget? 

I plan on about $950. 

When are you flying home, John? 

I can't get booked on the five o'clock plane; I don't know. 

There is a Delta Flight about six. 

You may be able to get a Royale flight. 

I don't think you should fly Royale in this weather. 

Oh, I don't know! 

Yeah, these days all the airports and planes have so many 
electric things you don't have to worry. 

I'm still weary of Royale. They are so small. 

How is the weather down there, Dave? 

It is nice. It was clear when I left. I 

I guess the front hasn't reached the coast yet. 

You know, Bennett, if it weren't for this one here (indicates 
Chandler) McKeithen would still be sitting pretty. 

Yes , John , I know what you mean . 

Weren't we supposed to begin long ago? 

About 20 minutes. 

I sureJuope I can get a flight back soon. 

The weather may be bad down there by now. 

It isn't bad for flying at all, really. It is hardly sprink- 
ling. And with those instruments it should be smooth sailing 
or flying. Heh heh! 

I guess you're right. 

The weather here is really a mess, though. 

Yeah. 

It really is. 

Just enough sprinkle to get things good and damp. 

The cold front must have come through. 

Is the weather good to the south? 

I don't know. ! 

Weren't we supposed to begin 15 minutes ago? 

Yeah, but you know how it is. You can never trust those 
electronic gadgets! 

Do you think it will clear up by the time we finish here? 

I sure hope so. 

It may be midnight before we get out of here. 

I sure would like some coffee. I wonder if they have any 

There is a cafe across the hall.

DIAL-A-BOOK 




By Charles Harrington/Head 
Librarian 

Effective immediately, the 
Centenary Library will provide 
interlibrary loan service to 
Centenary students on the same 
basis that it has traditionally 
provided this service to members 
of the faculty. This new service 
is being established through 
special agreements with most of 
the academic libraries in Loui- 
siana and the ten libraries af- 
filiated with the Southern Col- 
lege-University Union, the Nash- 
ville-based academic consortium 
which Centenary joined two years 
ago. The American Library Asso- 
ciation interlibrary loan code 
otherwise discourages loans for 
undergraduate students. 

Through S. C. U. U. , the re- 
sources of the Joint University 
Libraries at Vanderbilt University, 
the Fish University Library, and 
other libraries in the Nashville 



by Barbara Robbins 

All -Campus Halloween Week- 
end, or "three' days of cheap 
thrills," got off to a wobbly 
start as the annual beer and 
bike race weaved its way down 
fraternity row. Though the 
beer didn't stay with the riders 
long, the KA's peddled in for 
first and second place. 

Later Friday, UFO's, a se- 
ance, and a couple of movies 
were added to the festivities. 
Mr. John Williams of the physics 
department introduced UFO's by 
showing slides and telling of 
his personal adventures tracing 
down the mysterious creatures, 
most of which he explained into 
thin air. Later, Drew Hunter 
began his "mysterious happening" 
by trying to contact his cousin, 
Elizabeth, who had died five 
years before. As one young lady 
stated: "There were three ways 
to have made the seance come 
off a) if it were for real 

b) if it had been faked better 

c) if a cuter boy had been sitting 
next to me. 

As the audience grasped each 
other's hand, mysterious things . 
began to happen. Voices and Eli- 
zabeth's face seemed to appear 
out of air. One of the girls on 
stage went into a trance only to 
faint and have to be carted from 
the stage. 

The flick, "The Witch," an 
Italian import, seemed to really 
hold the audience's attention, 
though laughter, ooh's and giggles 
were heard frequently. 



Saturday began with a powder 
puff football game. Girls, 
having rarely been introduced to 
flag football, tackled, kicked, 
and often pushed their way across 
the field with Sexton and Hardin 
barely beating out James 7-6. Af- 
terwards a friendly tug-of-war 
began with KA's and Chi O's coming 
in champs . But pandemonium broke 
loose as one person after another 
was plunged, pushed, driven, 
tackled, or dragged into the slimy 
depths of the mud-hole. Local 
TV's golden eye caught snch 
heart -warming tackles as those 
made by Whit Boggs. Next came 
the pie throwing, oops!, pie- 
eating contest. First in the 
line-up came the boys, but some- 
how pies seemed to take wings 
and come flying through the air 
to land in some unfortunate's 
face. Girls entered next with 
a winner, but again winged pies 
made everyone forget the original 
purpose. The van hoarding the 
items in question circled Hardin 
Field and a free-for-all broke 
loose with pies, people, mud, 
and the van all going in dif- 
ferent directions. Meanwhile 
at the water hose, people were 
fighting to be next to get a 
few inches of mud and pie out 
of clothes, hair, and eyes. 

Saturday, night, the high- 
point? of the weekend occurred 
with the costume dance and con- 
test in the SUB. Various crea- 
tures, earthly and unearthly, 
beautiful and not so beautiful . 
danced, made sick jokes, and 



generally did what all spooks 
do on Halloween. Finally the 
big moment, the judging of 
best costumes . . . "and the 
winners are . . . third place- 
Count Dracula (Drew Hunter, of 
course) ; second place-The Black 



area will be available to Cen- 
tenary students. Mrs. Barbara 
Meadows, the librarian employed 
by S. C. U. U. to promote inter- 
library cooperation, has promised 
to help in every way possible 
to locate materials needed at 
Centenary . 

In Louisiana, the Northwest 
Louisiana Library System, which 
is being organized with state 
and federal funds at the Shreve 
Memorial Library, will facili- 
tate the location and delivery 
of library materials in the 
Shreveport area. The new Loui- 
siana Union Catalog of Books 
based on Library of Congress 
catalog card numbers will help 
locate books in seventeen li- 
braries scattered throughout 
the state, including the L. S. U. 
Library in Baton Rouge, the Loui- 
siana State Library, the New 
Orleans Public Library, and the 
libraries at Louisiana Tech and 
Northwestern State University. 

The TWX station at the Cen- 
tenary Library gives rapid com- 
munications with the Joint' Uni- 
versity Libraries in Nashville 
and most of the academic li- 
braries in Louisiana. In 
most cases, it should be possible 
to find and have needed materials 
in Shreveport within two or three 
days and sometimes faster. 

Mrs. Anna White, the Head of 



Ghosts (unknown); and ^©/^the. Centenary Library Circulation 

Department, has special forms to

but some still believe it &\\ used in maJcir »g interlibrary

Politicians Happy With 
Mock Election Results 

by Scott Kemerling 

Cries such as "What are all those names doing there?", and "I 
don't know any of them!" were not uncommon at the mock election 

held Wednesday in the SUB . ..„■,.*- j 

J Bennett Johnston was the winner with David Treen second. 

P.J. Mills won the Lieutenant Governor's race, and Tom Stagg won 

the Attorney General's race. 

The Johnston headquarters said 

that they were "delighted" with 



the returns. 'Today's poll at 
Centenary," they said," confirms 
what we've been saying for the 
past two or three weeks. Our 
candidacy has tremendous momen- 
tum. It's even more clear now 
that the other candidates are 
declining or remaining static." 
The Treen people were very 
encouraged by his showing , and 
were pleased that Treen ran so 
well against a local man. A 
spokesman for Treen said that 
they are "happy that students 
are taking an active interest 
in politics." 

Tom Stagg was delighted with 
his win. He said that it is a 
big boost to a man when the youth 
of his own home town don't turn 
him down. Stagg would like to 
see more students become involved 
in the campaigns and elections, 
and said that by involvement stu- 
dents can help overcome their 
frustrations concerning govern- 
ment, while they at the same time 
can help change the system by 
working within it. 

Sherry Lewis, head of the 
Election Committee, was very- 
pleased that about 251 of the 
student body voted in the elec- 
tion which she thought was very 
good considering it was a non- 
campus election. Commenting on 
the number of names on the ballot ,' 
she said, "Be prepared for a Ion 
ger list in the real election 

Saturday." 

The election results were 
reported by print, radio, and 
television media in Shreveport.

inadequate report of an in- 
accurate -judgment by a biased 
and variable judge of the ex- 
tent to which a student has 
attained an undefined level 
of mastery of an unknown pro- 
'^portion of an indefinite a- 
cfmount of material . 
-Paul Dressell 
Michigan State University 
current Centenary' Cata- 
log, however, tells a different 
story: 

At mid-semester during each 
semester, instructors report 
to the Dean of the 
all grades averaging below 
"C." These are not official 
grades, but are used as 
nings that improvement is 
;sary. Faculty advisers 
notified of these de 
ciency reports, and the stu- 
dents should consul: i.1 
their advisers immediat 
upon receiving them.

Bob Hickman, sophomore: 'The 
fast is worthwhile because 
of what it represents. It 
has given me a broader insight." 
Joyce Sellers, junior: 'The 
fast is a symbolic way for 
showing your feeling for the 
people in East Pakistan." 
Kathy Heffron, freshman: "It's 

one way of helping other people. 
It won't kill us to give some 
thing to someone else one day." 
Robert Ed Taylor, chaplain: "I 
am trying to help someone 
stay alive by the giving of 
my money. It's one way in 
which I can try to help deal 
with some of the problem." 
Wednesday's activities received 
wide coverage from the Shreveport

the Journal , were at the noon 
gathering in front of the cafe-

ore some of the comments made by students participatin° 
in the "great referendum." Stepping belatedlv to the defense of ° 
our questionaire analysts, I wish to offer this information: 
1) 131 students participated' in this referendum 
1) Cf 131 students participating in this referendum, more 
than half came here on scholarships. Regrettably, this fact 
alone precludes interpretation of our results as necessarily- 
representative. • 

he results of the objective questions in this forum 
were compiled within two days of the conclusion of the 
referendum. Essay-type answers defy significant statistical 
correlat ion. 

lurpose of the essay -response questions was to give 
the SGA members some insight into the mood of our student 
body and to provide ideas for incorporation into proposal 
Legis 1. it ion. 
So much for that. 

Now to the meat of the matter. One outstanding feature we 
have noted in this referendum is a dissatisfaction with or con- 
ion about the SGA. Let me make this clear. The phrase, "Stu- 
dent Government Association" is a misnomer of colossal proportions 
It is neither an "association" of any moment, nor, bv anv stretch 
of the imagination, any kind of government. My predecessor in of- 
fice, in his "farewell" speech, made comments to this effect, but 
there remained those of us who idealist ically believed him wrong. 
Well, he was right. In four years at Centenary I have witnessed 
the impotence of the supposedly supreme legislative organ of 
the SGA in achieving any action of consequence. This is not, 
I still believe, to say that it could not, but is to say that, 
as presently constructed, it cannot. 

In the main, we as a student body seem to want, above all, 
to be recognized as adults. The real issue isn't the drinking, 
nor the dorm hours, nor the dress at Sunday dinner. It's the 

stude that says that someone else knows' what is best for us. 
The question is, "What can we do about it?" 

1 believe that the first thing we need to do is build a 
whole new structure of student "government" according to our 
own needs. For this purpose, I intend to appoint an Ad Hoc 
Committee to propose such a structure. We've been doing this 
for years, but . . . maybe . . . this time we can do it right! 
1 would suggest a lot of trimming in the structure and a lot of 
consolidation of committees, etc. If you're interested, write 
us a note In campus mail. If you're not that interested, don't 
bother. If you think you can and should chair the committee, 
make such a note. 

's it for now. Be back next week. We'll 
enlarge a little on some of what's been said here. I assume 

onal responsibility for these final statements, as they ex- 
press my personal beliefs. I think I'm right, .ind 1 know I'm 
not alone.

Dear Mr. Speck: 

(c/o CONGLOMERATE Editor) 
RE your editorial comments 
on the poster promoting the 
Nov. 3 FAST, located in the front 
caf: On Behalf of the "Loci! 
Hunger-Poster Making Committee" 
(as you put it) I would like to 
make a rebuttal. Although I am 
not certain that I understand 
all of your comments on the pos- 
ter, I do detect some concern over 
the fact that a photograph taken 
from Look Magazine is not of an 
East Pakistani refugee, but of 
a drug addict in Hong Kong (ac- 
cording to your protest). How- 
ever, Mr. Speck, you seem to 
have missed the point of the 
jposter. The MSM Steering Com- 
mittee does not support druu 
use (answering the question 
posed within your comments I , 
but at the same time, we do' 
not support starving people- - 
anywhere. The purpose of the 
photographs on the posters is 
to call attention to a situa- 
tion that we, as Americans, 
seem to have so quickly for- 
gotten, it is sad that' we can 
moralize so easily about such 
tragic situations' (whether 
they entail starving people 
or drug addicts) . We do, 
however, appreciate your con- 
cern. 

Sincerely, 
Cherry Payne 

To The Editor: 

Several students have 
spoken to me about having the 
Small Chapel open for private 
prayer and meditation. I have 
requested that the Small Chapel 
be kept open from 8:00 a. m. 
until 11:00 p. m. each day. 
Students and staff are urged 
to avail themselves of the op- 
portunity of this quiet place . 
for personal devotionals and 
meditation. For those who do 
not know cf the Small Chapel, 
it is immediately adjacent to 
the west side of the large Brown 
Memorial Chapel and can be en- 
tered from the right side, facing 
the entrance of the large chapel. 

If students encounter any 
difficulty in using the Small 
Chapel, please see me. 
Thank you.

To The Editor: 

I find it rather hypocri- 
tical that we should make such 
a noble hue and cry regarding 
the sacrifice of our Nov. 3 
meals for the sake of the East 
Pakistan Refugees, while last 
Saturday we equally saw fit to 
waste a prodigious amount of 
perfectly good food in a free- 
for-all pie fight . . 

Sincerely, 

Patricia Anne Bremeyer

from the Student Senate's Commit- 
tee on Elections just why sixty - 
nine loyal American citizens were

warmed and cooled bv the same 
winter and summer, as a Faculty 
nember, Administrator or Student 
is? 1 f you pm :1 i we not

To the Editor: 

We would like to thank all 
students for their participation

We especially would like to

IIl Quiet C*h4*%* <4 $***Pwa+2A 



by Ray Teas ley 
Maybe the seeds of social 
consciousness were sown in Sam 
Prowaaa as a boy. He was, af- 
ter all, one of the original 
longhairs. He fought the hair 
battle some fifty years ago in 
Shreveport schools and continues 
to fight now despite his advan- 
cing age (around 60). However, 
if the voters elect him sheriff 
tomorrow, he vows to cut it to 
soothe any hard feelings people 
may have about his "undignified" 
appearance. In the meantime, 
though, Sam Provenza continues 
his quiet campaign with both 
hair and his own sense of per- 
sonal dignity intact. 

Provenza possesses the 
traits common to many American 
populists. A working man with 
only two shirts to his name, he 
lives in the modest surroundings 
of the Turner Hotel on Louisiana 
Avenue. Sam is up and gone ev- 
ery morning before the stores 
open, making his rounds as a 
salvage contractor, busily round- 
ing up waste paper, bottles and 
other reusable materials to sell 
to various businesses that have 
use for them. More important 
than his work, though, is Pro- 
venza' s keen interest in the 
law and politics , evidenced by 
his long history as a public 




watchdog and candidate for 
various political offices. He 
can, perhaps, more easily than 
most, wear the title of "Working 
Class Hero." 

We ran across Mr. Provenza 
one recent afternoon in a down- 
town alley where he was busy at 
the work of gleaning salvageable 
materials from a newly dumped 
pile of commercial waste. With 
a warm smile and a generous sense 
of interest lie took time off to 
talk with us about his campaign 
and pose for photographs. 

"Do you think you will win 

Mr. Provenza?," I 

"Just remember the Aesop 
fable about the Tortoise and the 
Hare," he said confidently. 
"Stranger things have happened. 
een telling me ; 
ive more votes than most think 

Incumbent) 
■ put a big ad in the paper 
this morning. I think he might 
be worried." 

it will you do different- 
ly if you're elected?" 

think there's a lot of 
waste and inefficiency over there 
in that department," he said with 
the knowing expression of one who 
has dealt with waste before. "1 
think that could be improved." 
Provenza talked with us in- 
formally for at least a half an 
hour punctuating his easy con- 
sat ion with quips about his 
hair, stories and political anec- 




Provenza's active role in 
politics seems to have been sparked 
by an incident involving the city 
and two houses owned by him back 
in 1965. Authorities from the 
Fire Prevention Bureau armed with 
a court order went to his two 
Maple Street houses where he 
stored much of his collected sal- 
vage materials and began removing 
the piled articles because they 
were judged to be creating a fire 
hazard. Provenza arrived while 
they were in the process of car- 
rying it away and claimed that 
$14,000 was hidden in the two 
houses. A scuffle ensued and he 
was arrested for striking one of 



the officers with a bottle. Af- 
ter a search, $3,000 was found 
hidden in a syrup can and the next 
day a small amount of money - all 
in nickels - was also found. The 
incident resulted in suits of 1.31 
million dollars being filed un- 
successfully against the city and 
* possibly a little more active in- 
terest on the part of Sam Provenza 
in the political workings of 
Shreveport . 

I asked Sam the other after- 
noon what his future political 
plans were if he failed to win 
Saturday . 

He said, "My ambition is to 
be Mayor and I will run next time. 
There's a possibility too, that 
I'll run for one of the city 
judge's seats which come up next 
year I believe. I don't believe 
anybody should run unopposed." 



dotes. He mentioned the Lane 
Mitchell trial (former Public 
Works Commissioner convicted of 
theft) and the role he played in 
bringing the man to justice. It 
seems that when the judge pro- 
nounced sentence he got the date 
wrong but Sam was there to cor- 
rect him, thus preventing the 
possibility of a mistrial being 
declared. He also talked about 
his recent suit against the city 
sales tax put into effect last 
year. With a concerned look he 
noted that its next to impossible 
to get anywhere fighting taxes 
like these. 

Possibly the most disappoint- 
ing setback in Provenza 's poli- 
tical career was his candidacy 
for Mayor in 1966. In an unpre- 
cedented move, the chairman of 
the city Democratic Committee 
refused to accept his filing fee 
and certify his candidacy. He 
was forced to run as a write-in 
candidate, the first in modem 
Shreveport history. ""As Sam Pro- 
venza said, 'This destroyed me 
because the write-in space on the 

ballot was too small to write my 
name in," He wasn't too discour 
aged by this however, as he ran 
again as a write-in for the 
State Senate in 1969, and for a 
Shreveport Democratic Committee 
seat in 1970. Unfortunately, he 
lost botli times. 











We were both silent for a 
minute and then Mr. Provenza ad- 
ded with a playful laugh that 
"lawyers tell me I have to be a 
practicing attorney here for five 
years before I can be a judge. 
I always tell them that I 've 
practiced law all my life and in 
fact, I pass a bar every day." 

It was getting dark and we 
began bringing our conversation 
to a close. The salvage contrac- 
tor, populist, public watchdog, 
working class hero and tortoi 
candidate for sheri IT accepted 
our good luck wishes and waw 

made our way out of the 
alley. 

I couldn't suppress my smile 
as I pictured this man, with 
freshly cut hair, wearing the 
Sheriff's badge proudly, as he 
set out to eliminate the waste 
in his department. My feelings 
of political impotence in this 
election year were a little bit 
weaker for having talked with 
Sam Proven;a.

By Paula Johnson 
Apollo Elementary School 
in Bossier -City is a meaningful 
step towards better education 
for the future. Apollo is a non- 
graded, open-spaced school which 
was opened in 1969 after careful 
consideration by the Bossier 
Parish School Board, faculty, and 
parents of the children scheduled 
to attend the new facility. Board 
members made visits to similar 
schools throughout the country 
in order to get some ideas as 
to how a school such as this 
should run, taking hints from 
the older schools and learning 
from their mistakes. More than 
a year was taken to devise a 
curriculum for the new school, 
with ideas coming from teachers 
and administrators alike. 

The basic plan for Apollo 
came from the Matzske Elementary 
School in Houston, and by the 
time Apollo was finished, only 
one feature had been added 
which the Matzske School did 
not have. (The addition was an 
observatorium from which stu- 
dent teachers can observe the 
entire operation.) 

The building was designed 
by architect Thomas Meredith of 
Bossier City, and will hold up 
to 72 students ; oddly enough , 
Apollo was less expensive to con- 
struct than a conventional 
school of the same size. The 
physical plant consists of a 
massive room which holds all the 
classes. A learning resource 
center is situated at the cen- 
ter of the room where items 
such as books , audio -visual aids 
and maps are color coded according 
to the subject matter and are dis- 
played on small portable book- 
cases. The students are allowed 
to check out all study equipment 
themselves and operate the machines , 
mostly tape recorders , without 
supervision. The teacher sta- 
tions with student trays are 
movable, as are all the furni- 
ture pieces in Apollo. The ob- 
servatorium extends across the 
front of the room and is equipped 
with earphones and closed circuit 
television receivers to assist 
in student teacher observation 
as well as providing regular 
teachers with a method of iso- 
lating and observing individual 
problems. Private counseling 
rooms and large group ac- 
tivity rooms make up one side 
of the building with a cafe- 
torium (a generic term, I am 
told; it is a large room which 
can be used as either a cafe- 
teria or an auditorium, depen- 



ding on the time of day, sim 



are kept informed of their 
child's progress through indi- 
vidual progress reports and parent- 
teacher conferences . 

Educators are almost univer- 
sally agreed that individual 
discussions between parents and 



ply by rearranging the furniture) , teachers are very important be 



in back. A theater is located 
upstairs which can be used for 
music, drama, tumbling and nearly 
every other indoor activity nor- 
mally found in an elementary 
school . 

Students do not advance by 
grades at Apollo, rather on their 
own ability and growth . A- non- 
graded school is one in which all 
grade level names (as such) are 



cause the insights which can be 
gained through an ; interview are 
just not possible- in written 
reports. There are no regular- 
ly scheduled conferences at 
.Apollo as there are at some 
schools, but the school officials 
emphasized that teachers are re- 
quired to hold such a conference 
should the parents want one. 
This, they said, offsets the 



dropped; providing the opportunity need for conferences at regular 



for continuous progress at the 
child's own rate of speed. In 
the graded school structure, the 
child has to achieve a certain 
degree of proficiency within' 
a given time limit, whereas no 
such time limit is imposed on 
the student in the non- graded 
system. Each child is placed 
in a group which corresponds to- 
his own level of achievement and 
will best meet his own individual 
needs. Considerations in placing 
a child in one of these groups 
include interest, ability, age 
and achievement. In this way, it 
is hoped that the child will prog- 
ress without being hindered by 
artificial labels which come with 



intervals . 

In order for a > child to 
progress from one level to the 
next, he must demonstrate pro- 
ficiency in 80% of the material 
of his present level. His prog- 
ress towards this goal measured 
by means of a checklist, which 
tells the teacher which areas need 
work and which areas the child 
has already mastered. 

The success of Apollo School 
cannot be measured yet; it simply 
has not been in existence long 
enough to produce a. sufficient 
number of graduates to determine 
how they stand in comparison to 
their more conventionally edu- 
cated contemporaries. It has 



'grade' designations. Every skill established precedents for this 

level maintains related skills area, however, and has influenced 

from the previous level as well the Bossier Parish School Board 

as preparing the child for ad- to adopt some of the Apollo 

vancement to the next higher level practices in the other public

schools, it is definitely a

and the feeling of community is strengthened by the openness.

Will the Indians G< 



Editor's note: The Reader's 
Theater production of Bury My Heart At 
Mounded Knee , adapated from the bestseller 
by University of Illinois librarian Dee 
Brown, attempts to "present the sympathetic 
side" of the Indian story through dramatiza- 
tion of the long walk of the Navajos , the 
Sand Creek Massacre, and the eviction of 
the Ponca Indians from their homes. In the 
following exerpts borrowed by permission 
from a long article in the March 11, 1969, 
National Review , John Greenway , Professor of 
Anthropology of the University of Colorado 
at Boulder "challenges the prevailing assump- 
tions and historical shibboleths long asso- 
ciated with the American Indian," serving 
as a counter-argument to the statements of 
the playhouse production. 

When 36 out of 81 superior American col- 
lege students can look at a photograph of 
American soldiers removing piles of emaciated 
Jewish corpses from a liberated Nazi horror 
camp and identify the scene as Americans 
committing atrocities in Vietnam- -well, what 
is not to be expected? 

The unnatural eagerness of Americans to 
believe themselves to be monsters is not a 
biological imperative, despite its constancy 
from the earliest period of American history. 
It is Learned behavior, implanted neither 
by genes nor by experience, but by the teach- 
ings of the strangest class of intellectuals 
any nation has ever been damned with. 

Now more than ever before, the American 
Indian is a favorite scourge- -as a study of 
popular, non-scholarly books on the Indians 
demonstrates. The authors write about the 
Indian because the Indian in the American 
mind is as imaginary as Sandburg's Lincoln, 
a creation of fantasy, guilt and ignorance, 
on which eveyrone is his own authority. 
Edward Hicks should have painted the scene; 
in the background a massacre of Indian 
women and children; in the foreground a 
young Indian lad and his Indian lass, 
hand in hand, about to hurl themselves off 
a Lovers' Leap while singing "By the Waters 
of Minnetonka." The illusion is always 
more romantic than the reality; in real life 
Running Bear would have been less likely 
to seduce Little White Dove than to rape 
her. 

The lay readers should have a hard- 
core course in what the real Indian was 
like before exposing his raw conscience to 
books like these. He should know that the 
real Indian was ferocious, cruel, aggressive 
stoic, violent, ultra-masculine, treacherous 
and warlike, though these are anemic adjec- 
tives to describe the extent of his Dionysi- 
ac extremism. As for Our Treatment of the 
Indians , never in the entire history of 
the inevitable displacement of hunting 
tribes by advanced agriculturists in the 
39,000 generations of mankind has a native 
people been treated with more consideration, 
decency and kindness. The Mongoloids in 
displacing the first coiners of Asia, the 
Negroes in displacing the aborigines in 

ind every other group following the 
biological law of the Competitive Exclusion 
Principle thought like the Polynesian chief 
who once observed to a white officer: "I 
don't understand you English. You come 
here and take our land and then you spend 
the rest of your lives trying to make up 
for it. When my people came to these is- 
land, we just killed the inhabitants and 
that was the end of it." 

Some two million people who have read 
Ruth Benedict's classic of just-so anthro- 
pology, Patterns of Culture suppose that 
there were Apollonians on this earth, 
and that they were the Pueblo Indians. The 
only flaw in the Pueblos' angelic charac- 
ter was their effeminate peacefulness , Dr. 
Benedict suggested. But she did not say that 
the Pueblos killed the first Spaniard to 
visit them (ironically, the first "white" 



Whitey? 




Scene from Readers 
Heart At Wounded Knee , showing 

man killed by the Pueblos was a Negro) , 
that they killed and scalped missionaries, 
and that they conducted the most successful 
of all violent Indian rebellions against 
the whites. 

The Indians indeed did put up imitations 
of civilized institutions when it seemed 
profitable to do so, but they were the most 
palpable travesties. Dale Van Every's con- 
tribution to the Black Pages of White History, 
Disinherited , is an unitentional illustra- 
tion of how academic folklore on the Indians 
is constructed. He meets the stringent stan- 
dards of authority established by his peers, 
having once written a history entitled The 
AEF in Battle (which I have not read, fearing 
it might take the side of the Germans) and 
making movies for thirteen years. He deals 
with the central illusion, on which most of 
the others depend: that the Indians in 
the forest primeval were gathered into 
mighty nations. There were, he says, "twen- 
ty great Indian nations" in the Southeast 
alone, of which the greatest in civilization 
and suffering was the Cherokee. (Fact: 
From a population of two thousand in 1761 
this great Cherokee empire was reduced by' 
the white man's oppression, diseases, wars 
and massacres , to fifty thousand the last 
time they came into court to sue for 
the return of the Southeastern state 

When Van Every's heart is not weeping 
for the Cherokee, it is hemorrhaging for 
the Seminoles, who established a claim to 
Florida that the Indian Claims Commission 
has offered to pay off in a 1965 decision. 
How did the Seminoles establish ownership 
to Florida? By fleeing over the Georgia 
line with Negro slaves they stole from the 
whites. The Seminoles have been granted a 
cash settlement for the state, but they 
still want the state. We may get off easy 
by giving them Miami. 

James C. Olson pours out his heart's 
blood for the Sioux in nearly 400 pages of 
Red Cloud and the Sioux Problem without 
ever finding it pertinent to mention the 



producti 
through tomorrow night. 



Minnesota Massacre, in which at least 800 
whites were killed and 10,000 square miles 
of Minnesota cleared of settlers. About the 
only consistent use of the word "massacre" 
in these books appends to the Sand Creek and 
Wounded Knee massacres.* 

It is, by the way, almost impossible 
to find a book giving the white side of the 
Sand Creek affair; authors ignore the volum- 
inous testimony of the congressional investi- 
gation and accept the testimony instead of 
one Robert Bent, a survivor. This Bent 
makes an interesting witness; he was a renegade 
halfbreed who with his two brothers lived and 
raided with the Cheyenne. They were a pre- 
cious trio; one of them captured a white 
settler, staked him to the ground, cut out 
his tongue, castrated him, and built a fire 
on his stomach. 

Least funny of all these books is The Sho - 
shoneans- -The People of the Basin-Plateau , 
by two beatniks who toured the desert country

All the degeneration, of course, is attribu-

filth and asks why "the pasty doctors of the

^Z as a device to simplify suits against 
IZ oovernment for compensation for land 
Ration- m fact liability was ad- 

ft ed with the only issue to be determined 
"most cases being which Indians should 
'et the money. Five years were allowed 
fnr the filing of claims , and by the 1951 
teTdline, 852 claims were entered for 70 
JfJentof the United States. 

This is not to say that the American 
-onscience did not awaken until 1946 . 
Indians have been suing the whites for 
„ore than a century and swindling them 
for much longer than that. The first 
real estate fraud on the American con- 
tinent was that famous purchase of Man- 
hattan by Peter Minuit--but the tale has 
, een twisted over the years. It was the 
r^jtch who were swindled; the Scaticook 
Indians were the occupying owners, but the 
jeal was pulled by a mob of Canarsie In- 
Jians who were visiting Manhattan for the 
lay. The Scaticooks, by the way, have 
their claim in for the island, and they 
ire not about to take any junk jewelry 
for it this time. 

Jefferson paid Napoleon $15 million 
for the Louisiana Territory in another well- 
riublicized bargain- -a sum that did not in- 
:lude a further $300 million under the 
blanket to the Indians. Some Indians were 
Mid as many as six times for the same 
land, each time returning to complain that 
the white man was an Indian giver. 

And so from tribe to tribe ( a tribe 
now is defined as comprising any Indians 
the tribe council wishes to include in 
the loot). The Cherokee, who were them- 
's invaders and usurpers of the land 
they occupied, have received $14 million. 

A random deskload of books all arguing 
the profundity of American guilt in our in- 
justice to the Indians , and a class of students 
confusing American immolation with Nazi 
itrocities suggests a situation worth ob- 
serving for the sheer insantiy of it. How 
far can it all go? Will the 22 million 
tegroes in the United States sue the Govern- 
ment for all that free labor before 1865? 
<ill the descendants of Adam enter a claim 
against the United States (God being safely 
Jead) for their ancestor's unjust expulsion 
from the Garden? Will Sioux citizen William 
lawk succeed in his incredible compensation 
iam against the government for wounding 
iiis uncle, Gall, the Hunkpapa Chief, when 
dftell led his warriors against Custer at 
utle Big Horn? Will the Americans ever 
find out where to go to surrender for the 
-rime of being Americans? Not even the 
Indians are safe from the implicit absur- 
dities of the claims game. A year ago, 
i suit was filed in federal court in 
Denver, Colorado, against the United 
States and its derivative usurpers , 
^uding the Indians, by 23 descendants 
'tearTyMexican grant holders. This de- 
prived minority claims all of California,

Rest and Rhapsody 



By the Choir Correspondent 

As Nov. 8 draws near, the 
Centenary College Choir has 
been working to attain the abi- 
lity that should once again re- 
sult in an enjoyable "Rhapsody 
In View." y 7 

Choir Director "Cheesy" 
Voran, knowing that rest is an 
ijnportant element to good sing- 
ing, transported the choir to - 
Hodges Gardens on Oct. 29 for 
an "R and R" weekend composed 
of both Halloween thrills and 
all -important rehearsals. The 
songsters celebrated Halloween 
a bit early Friday with Great 
Pumpkin Carols , twelve sanguine 
sleeping bags, and plenty of food 
During the rehearsals , soloists 
were announced for their ap- 
propriate parts in Rhapsody. 

Statements such as "Her 
initials aro Ellem Gammill," 
and "We don't want to hear 
it, Pilgreen" continually rang 
through the night air on the 
lower level of the Island Home. 
(Oh yes, a bit of "inside 
patter" about the famous bus 
trips: Darkness need not pre- 
vail to allow a good time. 
Right Denny?, 

The Dedication for the Re- 
gional Airport was held Sunday, 
Oct. 31. As an appropriate 
contribution, the choir sang 
'The Builder's Creed" before 
moving to the second floor of 
the H- shaped airport to per- 
form a short concert. As dis- 
played by the attendance, this 
new facility is important to 
the people of Shreveport and its 
surrounding area. 

The choir also presented a 
concert at noon Wednesday before 
the Shreveport Lions Club, 
primary sponsor of Rhapsody In 
View. 

Rhapsody should be an en- 
joyable evening of entertain- 
ment on both Nov. 8 and 9 at 
8:15 p. m. at the Civic Center, 
with tickets available from any 
choir member.

The Parking Story 

By Jeff Hendricks 




By the recent action of Mr. 
Perry and Dean Miller, in coopera 
tion with the Student Government 
Association, freshmen here at 
Centenary are now legally allowed 
to have cars on campus . 

In the past manv freshmen 
brought cars to school , but 
were forced to do one of two 
things : (1) park their cars on 
Woodlawn Avenue in front of the 
library, or (2) get an upper- 
classman to discreetly buy a 
permit for them, the reason for 
this merely being a lack of 
parking space. However, since 
Hamilton Hall has been put into 
use, the parking lot adjacent 
to the old administration 
building is now open and can 
be used if freshmen would like 
to bring cars . 

There are some guidelines, 
however, that should be followed 
in order to keep from being 




ticketed. 

(1) In order to legally regis- 
ter a car on campus, permits 
must be purchased from the 
Business Office in Hamilton 
Hall (excluding parking on 
Woodlawn Avenue) . 

(2) Freshman boys will be 
allowed only to park their 
cars in lot 3 (between Jack- 
son Hall and old administra- 
tion building) due to lack 
of space in the Cline Dorm 
lot. 

(3) Freshman girls will be 
allowed to park in lot 1 (be- 
hind Hardin), or in lot 3 only. 
Anyone wishing to know 

more about the precise rulings 
on parking regulations here at 
Centenary may pick up a booklet 
in the Business Office, or if 
there are any questions concerning 
the new policy get in touch with i 
any member of the S. G. A. 



Chi Omega 

The Chi Omegas announce that 
their 'muddy" members won second 
and third places in the All- 
Campus weekend tug of war contest , 
This weekend is the weekend for 
the Chi Omega's annual Parents' 
Banquet, which will be held at 
El Chico's on Saturday. On Sun- 
day the actives will play the 
pledges in a powder-puff foot- 
ball game. The chapter also 
announces that Terry Riordan 
was selected as the outstanding 
Chi Omega for the month of 
October. 

Zeta Tou Alpha 

Last Monday night the members 
of Zeta Tau Alpha were instructed 
to wear Halloween costumes to the 
Zeta House and to BEWARE of the 
GIMP. The pledges hosted a party 
for the members, in which a skit 
was presented by the pledges 
games were played, refreshments 
were served, and several pranks 
were pulled by the pledges. 

Fraternities 



Kappa Alpha 

The Kappa Alpha chapter helped 
to boost the spirit of All- 
Campus Weekend by its participa- 
tion in many of the activities of 
the weekend. The K' 's won first 
and second places in the Beer >. ' 
Bicycle Race, the winning team 
being composed of Budd Bowen , 
Rusty Felton, Artie Geary, and 
Tom Gordon; and the second place 
team being composed of Randy 
Brunson, Bruce Bannerman, Fred 
Cabaniss, and Rick Sinclair. 
The KA's also won first place 
in the Tug of War Contest. Be- 
cause the KA's are skilled in the 
art of pie-throwing, they demon- 
strated their skills at the pie- 
eating contest last Saturday, 
which turned into a "fiasco" 
as we] 1 as a good time for every- 
one involved. The KA's send 
their congratulations tc 
Senate for a successful All- 
Campus Weekend, and they send 
their encouragement to the team 
of girls that participated 
in the Beer N" Bicycle race. 
The Kappa Alpha's have begun 
plans for their first annual 
scavenger hunt to be held on 
Saturday, Nov. 13. 



Kappa Sigma 



The Kappa Sigma chapter 
announces that it won the Intra- 
mural Football Sweepsrakes and 
that thj» Sigs played LSUS on 
Thursday, Nov. 4 for a city 
championship . 



Tau Kappa Epsilon 

Friday night, Nov. 5, the 
TKE's are hosting a party which 
will have the "psychedelic" 
theme. There will be a prize 
give to the girl wearing the 
shortest skirt.

The Central-West Shreveport 
Breakfast Program needs help. 
Because of the absence of federal 
funds for this program, which 
last year provided many children 
of the central and west parts 
of the city with breakfast on 
school mornings, will not be 
able to continue unless the 
citizens of Shreveport donate 
the necessary time and money. 
Anyone wishing to volunteer 
to help with this project, or 
wishing to make a contribution, 
should contact Mrs . Eddie Jones ,

England and Ireland 
Interim 



There will be an organiza- 
tional meeting for all those in- 
terested in the Literary Trip to 
England and Ireland in Jackson 
Hall 22A on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 
at 3:30 p. m. The purpose of 
the meeting is to discuss 
the itinerary, payment of 
costs, necessary documents, and 
academic preparation. 

As the time is fast approach- 
ing to make a definite commit- 
ment to this program, all those 
who are considering partici- 
pating in the trip should plan 
to attend this important meeting, 
or should contact Dr. Fergal 
Gallagher as soon as possible. 

Also, remember that all 
students intending to take 
Interim courses should register 
for them no later than Nov. 24. 

A Cappella Chorus

The A Cappella Chorus from 
Harding College in Searcy, Ark., 
will present a program of re- 
ligious music Saturday at 7:30 
p. m. in the Southern Hills 
Church of Christ. 

The performance is part 
of a nine -day tour, during which 
the group will make appearances 
in Texas and Arkansas as well 
as Louisiana. 

The chorus records a radio 
program, "Hymns from Harding," 
which is heard weekly on 160 
U. S. stations. It is directed 
by Dr. Kenneth Davis, Jr., pro- 
fessor of music at Harding, and 
has also released several long 
play recordings , including a 
six-volume collection entitled 
"Harding's Hundred Hymns."

Establishment 

Dean Eddie Miller at- 
tended a meeting last week of 
Effectiveness Training Work- 
shop in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Rufus F. Waller attended 
the South Central Region meeting 
of the Association for Com- 
puting Machinery on Nov. 1-2. 
This was a meeting of computer

Popular rock music group 
Grass Roots, who appeared here 
at Centenary last year, will 
return to Shreveport for a 
concert Nov. 20 at 8 p. m. in 
the Shreveport Municipal Audi- 
torium. 

The concert will be presented 
in Shreveport by 12th Street 
Productions of Houston, Tex., 
in association with KEEL radio. 

Rejoice 

Dear Hearts 

"Rejoice," a contemporary 
liturgical service, will be 
featured this weekend at Sunday 
Morning Worship services, 11:00 
a. m. Sunday, Nov. 14, in Brown 
Memorial Chapel. The service 
will be led by 40 members of the 
University Park United Methodist 
Church of Dallas, who will travel 
to Centenary Saturday, spend 
the night in Centenary dormi- 
tories, and visit the campus. 

The "Rejoice" service employs 
the use of contemporafy litur- 
gical forms along with 7 or 8 
guitars. The Sacraaent of Holy 
Communion will be observed, and 
all persons are invited to par- 
ticipate. Mr. Jody Lindh, 
director of the group, said 
that all aspects of the service 
are designed to involve the 
whole congregation in worship. 

The message will be a 
"dialogue sermon." 

Male Cheerleaders 

The male contingent of cheer- 
leaders has been chosen for the 
upcoming schedule of atheletic 
endeavors, during which they will 
join the previously chosen female 
cheerleaders in a concerted 
effort to push, urge, extoll 
and threaten the Gentlemen into 
the win column. The heavies 
are: Tom Gordon, Tracy Knauss,

MEDIA WATCH 



The move in American 
journalism is towards shorter edi- 
torials it seems, if the one which 
appeared in a recent edition of 
the Atlanta Constitution is any 
indication. It was entitled 
"Jam," and said: "If the traffic 
jam in Atlanta Monday morning 
does not convice you that the 
city needs rapid transit, then 
all the eloquence of the English 
language cannot convince you." 
Good thought. Good editorial. 

The trend can be taken too 
far however, as our "What in the 
World is Going On Here" award for 
this week goes to Ken Booth, radio 
station KEEL News Director, who 
played a tape of a telephone busy 
signal to indicate that the sub- 
ject of a potential news in- 
terviews was not available 
on a Wednesday morning news 
boradcast for comment. Con- 
gratulations, Ken. 



Conglomerate 

Recipe 
Corner 

This week's Recipe 
Corner does not contain 
one of the CONGLOMERATE'S 
usual epicurean delights ; 
rather we have chosen to 
instruct our readers in the 
techniques of building 
pyramids --a noble, if 
somewhat lost, art. So, 
for your further 
edification, may we present: 

How to Make a Replica 
of the Cheops Pyramid 

Take some heavy cardboard 
(not corrugated) and cut out 
four triangles (base 9 3/8 in., 
sides 8 7/8 in.). Fasten the 
sides together with adhesive 
tape to make a pyramid 
standing 6 inc. high. Place 
the pyramid on a large piece 
of paper and trace the 
outline of the base on the 
paper. Take the pyramid away 
and draw lines connecting 
the corners of the square. Use 
a compass to point one of the 
lines on a north-south axis by 
moving the piece of paper. 

Place a matchbox or other 
holder which is exactly 2 in. 
high where the lines cross 
and put a used razor blade on it 
so that the blades point east and 
west. Place the pyramid back 
on the square and wait about six 
days. The razor blade will 
sharpen. After that you can use 
the razor every day and put it 
back under the pyramid for 
resharpening . It can last up 
to 200 shaves. 

The pyramid and razor blade 
must stay on a north-south axis 
for the blade to sharpen properly. 
Don't set it up over any electrical 
device. Oh yeah, if you put any 
kind of raw meat (like a raw egg 
or a hamburger patty) on the 
platform under the pyramid it will 
never spoil (although it will 
dehydrate) . 

The above was borrowed from 
Rolling Stone and Richard Knudsen. 
in tnat order.

MORE FOR LESS 



by Suzee Segall 

Imagine yourself in England 
on a six week study program 
attending Oxford. Nine hours 
credit can be earned for $1175. 
The study encompasses the Renais- 
sance to the Industrial Revo- 
lution dealing in the Humanities -- 
literature, history, art, and 
philosophy. The very best Ox- 
ford scholars serve as lecturers 
and faculty from member colleges 
conduct seminars and tutorials . 
This is a recent development 
occuring in connection with the 
Southern College University 
Union, which consists of one 
university and nine colleges. 
Those holding membership are: 
Centenary, Hendrix, Millsaps, 
Birmingham-Southern, South- 
western at Memphis , Fisk , the 
University of the South, Centre 
College of Kentucky, Emory and 
Henry, and Vanderbilt university. 

According to Dean Thad N. 
Marsh, "The purpose of S. C. U. U. 
is to discover a means of coopera- 
tion to achieve educational ob- 
jectives that we are not able 
to achieve on our own. To do 
more for less money, in effect." 

There are many advantages in 
belonging to such a union, Dean 
Marsh stated, "The advantages are 
in inclusiveness. These are 
superior private institutions 
of the Mid-South." The planning 
was in the process before the 
incorporation in July, 1969. 
The area covered includes Cen- 
tenary on the West to Emory and 
Henry College on the East in 
Emory, Va. 

The union has two staff 
employees . Dr . Leonard_ B . 



Beach, former dean of the 
Vanderbilt Graduate School, 
and Mrs . Barbara Meadows . 
Under the union, Centenary has 
access to the Joint Universi- 
ties Library of Nashville, a 
major research library. Another 
advantage is that books can 
circulate from one college to 
another arid would not other- 
wise be loanable under the Inter- 
Library Loan. (Any student can 
call Mrs . Meadows and obtain 
instantaneous service. She 
does reference and bibliographical 
work and the books will be re- 
ceived in 24 hours.) The Inter- 
Library Loan was prohibited to 
undergraduates until recently. 
Along these same lines is 
the exchange of librarians for 

Final Look 
At Interims 

by Taylor Caffery 
As of Tuesday, approximately 
170 students (out of 734 full- 
time) were on record in the Regis- 
trar's Office as enrolling in 
Interim courses. The most popular 
course, with 82 students, is 
Psychic Pehnomenon. 

Nov. 24, just before Thanks- 
giving holidays start, is the 
registration cut-off date. After 
this date, all v \.i'hout 
five registered students will 
be dropped. (while the surviving 
courses will remain open, for 
the most part, until the semes- 
ter ends) .

on the job traning. Centenary 
will have a librarian working 
during the month of January for 
the Joint Universities Library, 
and we will have a Vanderbilt 
librarian working here. The 
Vanderbilt librarian will get 
a better idea of how to pro- 
vide for undergraduates, since 
they have a much smaller num- 
ber as compared to those of 
the graduate level. In addi- 
tion, Centenary is prepared to 
send a student to Vanderbilt 
for the January Interim from 
any department for advanced re- 
search in his major field. This 
is an unstructured program 
assisted by Mrs. Barbara Meadows 
there . 

Concerning the science area, 
there are two National Science 
Foundation Grants available in 
Natural Science and Social 
Science. Nine college members 
will assemble at Nashville and 
Oakridge, Term, along with 
scientists planning cooperative 
exchange programs. Already 
there is an interim program of- 
fered for science study at Oak- 
ridge in January. There is a 
masters of science degree in 
Environmental Engineering (Eco- 
logy) to be offered in four 
years and one summer. Plans 
are being studied to develop 
a program in psychology and 
other areas as well. 

Centenary has preferential 
access to study abroad under 
the Vanderbilt programs. They 
offer "Vanderbilt in Madrid, 
Spain; Aix, France; Leicester, 
England; and Reginsburg, Ger- 
many.

On Compulsory Chapel, 

To the Editor 

A compulsory assembly twice/ 
thrice a semester seems to me 
would be good for Centenary Col- 
lege. 

It would serve as a means of 
communication. Matters of stu- 
dent interest that cannot be 
covered adequately in the 
CONGLOMERATE- -such as the com- 
plex process of how to get things 
done around here- -might be pre- 
sented in a lively manner, as 
was the spectacular blast-off 
for "Dynamite, '70," a most 
memorable experience for me as 
a college freshman. The general- - 
or financial --situation of the 
college might be presented to it- 
self as a whole. An occasional 
speech by the President and/or 
the Dean of the College might be 
given, concerning, perhaps, the 
philosophical basis of the 
school--its desires, needs, 
goals. 

"Such communication is fine/ 
dandy," some will no doubt point 
out, "but why require it? Isn't 
that a step backward from our 
progressive movement?" To both, 
I shall reply: "Know." 

There are points at which the 
rights of the individual and the 
rights of the college as a whole 
conflict. Such a point is this. 
I maintain that we members of 
the college can afford to cast 
aside our freedom from tyranny 



twice/thrice a semester for the 
good of the college community. 
I doubt not that students could 
benefit from knowledge of the 
intracacies of SGA. I doubt not 
that we would benefit from commen- 
tary upon the state of our in- 
stitution. And I doubt not that 
we students could benefit from a 
presidential oration. This type 
of presentation- -I submit- -would 
contribute to an enhancement of 
us students and, thus, of the col- 
lege. Further, I submit that this 
type of program could help solve 
"the real problem at Centenary," 
as viewed by the Executive Coun- 
cil of the SGA: 'The real prob- 
lem, some of us believe, is our 
lack of identity as a student 
body." (CONGLOMERATE, Nov. 12, 
1971, page 3, #6.) In view of 
this objective, therefore, it 
is not unreasonable to ask 2 
hours per semester; indeed, we 
should be willing to offer them. 
And if we aren't? 

What's all the flue about the 
principle of the real thing, any- 
way? It's childish- -perhaps only 
adolescent --to assume that 
nothing will ever be compulsed 
upon us. Take life, for example. 
(Let me throw in right here that 
there is something to be said 
for mere physical closeness; it 
seems a shame that in a school 
this size we come together as a 
whole not once.) Life, by golly, 
is crowded, and with require-

About the SGA, 

To the Editor: 

I am becoming increasingly 
alarmed about the situation of 
student government on this campus . 
We, as a student body, seem to 
hold little ( if any) regard or 
concern for our government. Per- 
haps the appalling number of stu- 
dents who take part in elections 
demonstrates this. Yet, what is 
even more tragic is that the stu- 
dents seem to hold little concern 
for their own funds --for example, 



Rhapsody, 



To the Editor: 

In response to the review 
which appeared in the Shreveport 
paper concerning the 1971 edition 
of "Rhapsody in View," a large 
number of students on campus have 
expressed feelings contrary to 
those stated in the Shreveport 
review. We feel that these 
opinions should be brought 
to light 

We found this year's "Rhap- 
sody" to be enjoyable, in par- 
ticular 'The Creation," narrated 
by Wally Underwood. Wally's per- 
formance was moving, sensitive, 
and a high point of the concert. 
Obviously, a great deal of thought 
and effort went into the per- 
formance of this number. 

The choir has always rep- 
resented Centenary admirably, 
and this year has certainly been 
no exception. 

To Cheesy we say thank you 
and congratulations. Keep up 
the good work! 

Sincerely, 
Linda Munch 
Millie Feske 

ments, right and other, wise? 
Ya have to turn in research 
papers--else fail the course, 
leave the school. Ya have to 
take tests--else fail the course, 
leave the school. On the other 
hand, however, it is mature to 
admit that we just may not all 
the time know that which is per- 
fectly best for ourselves --and 
to be big enough to liand over a 
few hours of our college ex- 
perience to those in pursuit 
of common unity. 

"Okay," you may ask, "what's 
all this about 'community'? Why 
the stress on it?" I shall res- 
pond: "It feels good, Woodlock." 

Meanwhile, let us hear from 
one of America's very worst 
presidents. But- -you know? --he's 
the only place I've ever come 
across what he says in so suc- 
cinctly a manner: 

'Tradition and custom, it 
will be seen, are oftentimes 
determining factors in the 
Presidential office, as they 
are in all other walks of life. 
This is not because they are 
arbitrary or artificial, but 
because long experience has 
demonstrated that they are the 
best methods of dealing with 
human affairs. Things are done 
in a certain way after many 
repetitions show that way 
causes the least friction and 
is most likely to bring the 
desired result." --Calvin Coolidge

Pierre Salinger cost the student 
body $1250.00, and I would be 
surprised if one fifth of the 
student body of Centenary College 
actually heard Mr. Salinger. 

There is a movement on campus , 
primarily initiated by some mem- 
bers of the executive council , 
to initiate a new S. G. A. 
Constitution due to the "inef- 
fectiveness" of the present 
one. However, it is my con- 
tention that the problem does 
not lie within the constitution 
itself, but within the members 
of the student government, 
through lack of responsibility, 
proper administration and con- 
cern. This is true of all facets 
of student government from the 
executive council to the senate 
to the committee chairmen (this 
includes myself)-. Furthermore, 
I must seriously challenge the 
Executive Council's planned pro- 
posal to reinstate some form of 
a compulsory all -campus convo- 
cation, in order to "reestablish 
communication" on campus. Lack 
of communication is due to lack 
of concern and/or effort by those 
who have something to say or 
publicize and the student body 
as a whole (I hate to bring up 
dead issues , but an example of 
this is the "publicity" of 
freshman elections.) 

At the moment I am very dis- 
satisfied with student government. 
However, it seems that little 
can be done as long as the stu- 
dents of Centenary continue to 
ignore their student government 
and their privileges as stu- 
dents. It seems that we are let- 
ting our SGA become more and more 
irresponsible and are letting 
them push us around through our 
lack of concern. Are we going 
to make a bigger farce out of 
student government than it is?

And Abortions. 



To the Editor: 

Thounsands of women from 
all parts of the United States 
will be gathering in Washington, 
D. C. and San Francisco tomor- 
row, Nov. 20, to march for the 
repeal of all abortion laws 
and against forced steriliza- 
tion and restrictive contra- 
ception laws. 

If it were at all possible, 
I would be marching to give my 
support to this cause. Because 
of restrictive abortion laws, 
thousands of women have illegal, 
back-alley abortions every year 
and many of these end in pain, 
mutilation, and death. It is 
inhuman to force women to have 
abortions performed by butchers 
when this operation, if per- 
formed with proper medical safe- 
guards, is statistically safer 
than carrying pregnancies to term. 

It is every woman's right to 
choose to have or not to have 
an abortion. This is not the 
right of a woman's doctor, 
psychiatrist, lawyer, or minis- 
ter. As it stands now, the 
law gives a woman the right 
to choose between bearing un- 
wanted children and the mutila- 
tion or death resulting from 
illegal abortions. Neither 
of these choices are beneficial 
to the woman, the unwanted child, 
or society. 

It is our responsibility 
to see that these laws are re- 
pealed to give women the right 
to choose. A safe, legal abor- 
tion should be available to any 
woman who wants one, regardless 
of age or financial situation. 
Write your state and national 
representatives immediately .

Homecoming Weekend 
Events Set To Go 

by Pam Sargent 
Homecoming on the Centenary campus has taken on new dimensions. 
When approached by Cherry Payne for permission to hold a bonfire on 
Hardin Field, a member of the Fire Department stated that they were 
trying to refrain from giving permits to "pagan celebrations." He 
then suggested that she try the Fire Chief, from whom permission is 
pending . 

The next morning, Friday, 
December 3, when the proposed 
fire and impassioned blood have 
calmed down a bit, there will be 
a student -faculty breakfast in 
the SUB, from 9:30 - 11:30 am. 
Entertainment is to be provided 
by a "Senior Follies" at 10:00 
am. Later that day, a Pep 
Rally will be held at 1 pm. 
The teams , coaches , cheerleaders , 
usherettes, and the band will 
be introduced to the students. 

Funded by $30 to each fra- 
ternity, the male portion of 
Greek Row will hold a cocktail 
party. Termed the "Happy Hours," 
it will begin at 4:00 pm and 
end at 6:00 pm, or whenever 
the liquid refreshment gives 
out. All students are cordially 
invited to attend. 

Homecoming weekend will then 
reach its climax with the sche- 
duled games: Freshmen at 6:00 
pm and Varsity at 8:00 pm, both 
against East Texas Baptist Col- 
lege. At halftime, the Home- 
coming court will be presented 
and the queer} crowned. 

Following the games , a 
dance will be held, the loca- 
tion of which will be announced 
later. 



J. C. Superstar 
To Conflict With 
Homecoming Nite 

If Homecoming isn't already 
enough activity for Saturday, 
Dec. 4, the planned production 
of "Jesus Christ Superstar" for 
that night should add some bustle 
to the night's events. Shreveport 
Times Amusements Editor Jim 
Montgomery made the discovery that^ 
a promotion firm from Dayton, 
Ohio, has booked the "National 
Touring Company" of JCS into , 
the Municipal Auditorium for f «** 
one show that night .

Centenary's 
Thanksgiving 

By Carol Bickers 

What will Centenary students 
be doing over the four -day Thanks- 
giving holiday? The itinerary of 
activities ranges all the way 
from remaining on campus to work- 
ing on term papers to traveling 
to Washington, D. C. 

Officially the Thanksgiving 
vacation begins at 12 noon on 
Wed., Nov. 24--although it is 
not unheard of for a Centenary 
student to begin Ms-holiday 
early. Boys who remain on cam- 
pus during the vacation will 
stay in the basement of Cline 
Dormitory, while girls will be 
housed in James Annex. The 
cafeteria will not be open du- 
ring the break. Perhaps all too 
soon for most students , classes 
will resume at 7:50 a. m. on 
Mon., Nov. 29. 

Although some students have 
not finalized their plans for 
the holidays, others already 
have a full itinerary planned. 
Among the various activities 
to be engaged in over the 
Thanksgiving break are: 

Nancy Norris, junior: 
"Writing term papers." 

Jim Cotter, sophomore: 
"Working." 

Wendy Waller, sophomore: 
"I will probably go to Baton 
Rouge for a day." 

Cherry ^ayne, sophomore: 
"I will be remaining on campus. 
One day, probably Friday, we 
might take a bike ride out to 
Cross Lake." 

Jane Cochran, freshman: 
"Nothing in particular, I am 
just going home to rest." 

Jeff Daiell, junior: 
"Going to Marshall, Texas." 

Moussa S'baiti , junior: 
"I will probably go to the In- 
ternational Conference in Alexan- 
dria. I f I do not go there , 
I'll go to Dallas." /} 

Faculty Changes 
Grade Rules 

Students' overall cumulative 
averages must now equal at 
least a 2.0 in all college work 
including major study areas, 
according to action passed at 
the faculty meeting Monday night. 
The faculty action removed the 
word "other" from p. 47, item 
4 of the college catalogue , 
unde r ' 'Degree Requ i rement s . " 
The new statement in effect

Hall Lyons Announces 



Conservative Hall Lyons 
of Lafayette has announced 
his formal candidacy for Gover- 
nor on the American Party ticket. 
A registered Republican un- 
til 1968, Lyons switched his 
support to George Wallace, the 
American Party candidate, after 
the Nixon nomination, and changed 
his registration following the 
election. 

Lyons said he and the Ameri- 
can Party, advocates of freedom 
of choice in all areas of human 
action, "would take power away 



from the Governor and the 
bureaucrats and return it 
to the local level and the people.' 
His formal platform will be re- 
leased shortly. 

A member of the national 
committee of the American Party, 
Lyons plans to support Wallace 
for President in 1972. As a 
Republican in 1966, he ran for 
Congress against Edwin Willis, 
receiving almost 42*' of the 
vote. 

He is the son of Republican 
leader Charlton H. Lyons of 
Shreveport . £d£W 

'STUDY SCHEDULE ^^eM^^ 

(Reprinted by popular demand) *& \\IL 

Most of us, at one time or another, have been inspired \J^ 
to devise a schedule for organizing our daily activity. The 
first schedule we write inevitably starts: 

6:00 a. m.--Wake up. Turn off alarm. Study. 

Well, after years of experience and observation, we have 
devised a realistic schedule--a schedule you can keep. The 
following is a representative sample of a typical Monday in the 
life of a typical Centenary student: 

6:30 a. m.- -Alarm rings. (You have a 7:50, and you intended 
to make it to breakfast by 7:30.) 

6:35 a. m.--Turn off alarm. Decide to sleep a little longer 
and skip breakfast . 

8:00 a. m.--Wake up. Realize that, once again, breakfast is 
not the only tiling you've skipped. 

8:15 a. m.--You are finally able to throw one foot out of bed. 
(Throw cautiously if you are on a top bunk.) 

8:17 a. m.--Get back in bed and open your math book 
have a test at 10:10.) 

8:50 a. m.--Miss second class. 

9:00 a. m.--Wake up when you turn over and jab a corner of 
your math book in your face. Begin to read math book frantically 

9:05 a. m.- -Realize that you had better get dressed if you 
intend to make it to the Sub for the break. 

9:35 a. m.— Walk into the Sub, displaying your characteristic 
promptness . 

10:15 a. m. --Leave Sub for 10:10 class. 

10:20 a. m.- -Arrive at 10:10 class. 

10:30 a. m.- -Leave class after writing all you know on your 

test paper. 

11:00 a. m.- -Search frantically for your math professor. 
You realize that you forgot to put the honor pledge on your test. 

11:05 a. m.- -Discontinue search. One glance at your paper 
and he'll know you didn't cheat. 

-Recuperate from severe mental strain of math

Drop Deferments For Fun And Profit 



Young men who wish to 
drop draft deferments in favor 
of 1-A classifications may still 
do so, according to current 
Selective Service regulations . 
Local boards will continue to 
grant these requests even though 
the young men continue to meet 
the conditions for which the 
deferments were granted. Six 
categories are included: 1-S, 
high school students; 2 -A, 
occupational deferments or voca- 
tion/technical students; 2-C, 
agricultural deferments; 2-D, 
divinity students; 2-S, under- 
graduate college students ; and 
3-A, hardship deferments. 

This policy was instituted 
in late 1970 and was of parti- 
cular interest to young men 
with random sequence. (lottery) 
numbers above the highest RSN 
called for induction. By 
dropping their deferments at 
the end of the year, they became 
part of that year's prime selec- 
tion group. On Jan. 1, they 
were placed in a second priority 
position. Because of this, they 
are not subject to induction 
until the manpower supply in the 
first priority selection group 
is exhausted; a development likely 
only if a major national emer- 
gency occurs. 

The policy was reaffirmed in 
a Local Board Memorandum sent 
last week by Draft Director Curtis 
W. Tarr to all 4,000 local draft 
boards. Registrants who desire 
to take advantage of the policy 
in 1971 must have been born in 
1951 or earlier, have RSN's of 126 
-or above, and not be a member of 
the extended priority selection 
group. Moreover, they must 
submit their request in writing. 
To be considered as part of the 
1971 prime selection group, the 
requests must be postmarked 
no later than Dec. 31. 

RSN 125 has beer, set as the 
year-end ceiling for 1971 
draft calls. Unlike 1970, when 
the year-end ceiling was not 
necessarily reached by all local 
boards, the authorization in 
the 1971 draft amendments of a 
Uniform National Call insures 
that all eligible registrants 
will be considered for in- 
duction if they: (1) are in 
Class 1-A on Dec. 31, (2) are 
20 years of age or older on that 
date, and (3) have RSN's of 
125 or below. If young men 
meet these cirteria, but are 
not inducted during 1971, th 



liability for induction will be 
extended into 1972 . They will be 
prime candidates for induction 
during the first three months 
of the year along with other 
men who are now in the extended 
priority selection group. 

Commenting on the continuation 
of the policy which allows the 
dropping of deferments, Dr. 
Tarr said: 'Young men holding 
lottery numbers of RSN 126 and 
above car effectively limit 
their vulnerability to the draft 
by being classified into i-A 
by the year's end. Since the law 
allows young men to apply for 
deferments, we believe those 
young men granted deferments 
should be able to drop them if 
they desire." 

"Our purposes," Tarr added, 
"arc to achieve fairness to all 
registrants in determining their 
priority status on Jan. 1 of 
the new year and to limit the 
uncertainty that young men with 
high random sequence numbers 
face. Registrants with student, 
occupational, paternity, agri- 
cultural , and hardship defer- 
ments will be eligible to take 
advantage of this policy."

Four students of the Cen-

elected to offices in the local 
chapter of the Student Louisiana 
Teachers Association in a Tues- 
day election. The new president 
of the organization is Robert L. 
Crowe of Bossier City, while 
William Cunningham of Shreveport 
is to be vice president for 
the current school year. .Also 
elected to official position 
were Roxanne Taylor of Elysian

rer and Joyce Sellers of New 
Orleans, reporter. 

According to an Education 
Department spokesman, the Stu- 
dent Louisiana Teacher's Asso- 
ciation is a student group with 
chapters at nearly all colleges 
which have programs in education. 
The Centenary chapter was de- 
activated four years ago, and 
has just recently been restarted. 
The group is involved in the 
investigation of, and finding 
solutions for, various problems 

tudent teaching

Your Money 

The Senate at its Wednesday 
meeting passed unanimously a 
recommendation from the Execu- 
tive Council to raise the stu- 
dent activities fee $5, making 
it $19.75. There will be an 
all-campus election on this 
issue on Wednesday, December 1. 
(This is the same day we vote 
for Homecoming Queen) . 

The Student Senate present ly 
receives $14.75 per student from 
the General fee of $50. This 
semester the SGA received 
$11,180.50 (758 students x $14. 
75) . This is a considerable 
amount of money, yet it is not 
enough to adequately cover the 
various activities of the SGA. 
One reason is that the cost 
of campus entertainment has 
soared. Good bands for dances 
cost more. The coffeehouse 
circuit is more expensive as 
there are more performers. 
The SUB committee in the fu- 
ture will present recent re- 
lease motion pictures; the cost 
will be greater. Another reason 
is that the cost of concerts 
has risen ; the prices of per- 
formers , publicity, sound equip- 
ment and incidentals are out- 
rageous. Costs for all-campus 
weekend and homecoming have 
also risen. Honorariums for 
Forums speakers are also high. 
In addition, the budget for 
the CONGLOMERATE is barely ade- 
quate . 

Finally, the SGA bills 
(Telephone, campus publicity, 
and general campus activities) 
can amount to a considerable 
sum. 

For these reasons , I feel 
that the proposed $5 increase 
is completely justified, and 
is not too great a price to pay. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John Taylor, SGA 
Treasurer

three months on Alcatraz in 1969 
in a demonstration to win back 
the lands guaranteed to the In- 
dians under the provisions of 
the Sioux Treaty of 1868. The 
treaty states that all U.S. sur- 
plus land will revert back to 
the Indians when the government 
no longer needs it. Alcatraz 
iv-^s abandoned as a federal pri- 
son several years ago, and has 
been vacant since that time. 

Miss Thorpe, prior to her 
joining the Indians on the Is- 
land, was a real estate broker 
in Arizona. She is a direct 
descendant of Chief Blackhawk, 
a noted Saulk and Fox chieftain. 

Besides efforts to regain 
Alcatraz, she has helped the 
Northwest Indians in Seattle in 
their efforts to win the 1100 
acre Fort Lawton when it is de- 
clared surplus by the government. 
The Indians want to use the 
lands for an Indian Urtiversity 
and cultural center. 

The program will be held at 
8:00 p.m. at the Hurley Music 
Building Auditorium.

Hamilton Hall Papers

CONGLOMERATE 



As liason between the Metho- 
dist church and Centenary Col- 
lege, Grayson Watson represents 
the college to churches all over 
the conference, explaining to 
the church members the uses of 
the money they give. Money from 
the Methodist church comes from 
three main areas: l.)dollar 
per member program; 2.) $600,000 
grant; and 3.) individual gifts. 
The dollar per member program s... 
amounted to $70,000-75,000 last 
year. It comes from each church 
in the conference, one dollar 
from each member. The grant 
which will be accumulated over 
a three -year period, will go in- 
to the endowment fund to make 
money, while the dollar per mem- 
ber money goes directly into the 
operating budget. An example of 
the individual gift is Mr. Bynum 
from New Orleans who had never 
been on campus but left the 
school $2,000,000. Watson also 
works very closely with Robert 
Holladay, director of Alumni 
Relations , on the estate planning 
seminars. Another area of work 
is the admissions office. The 
Methodist Church is the vehicle 
through which this office gets 
names and addresses of high 
school students. Every Methodist 
church in America is sent the 
admissions department publication, 
Dimensions . Watson also works 
with the bishop, Rev. Aubrey 
Walton, and his cabinet. Working 
with faculty is another of 
his duties. He tries to make 
them understand that "The Metho- 
dist Church in Louisiana wants 
Centenary to be the strongest 
possible academically, and in- 
tellectually." The simmer con- 
ferences on campus are also his 
responsibility. The school made 
nearly $45,000 from these events 
this past summer. 

As the school year begins 
so does the registrar's duties 
Organizing and conducting regis- 
tration except for the physical 
layout is Mrs. Zama Russell's 
first duty along with preparing 
and filing folders for all who 
register. After registration 



comes punching cards --drop/ adds 
(932 for the first half of this 
semester), advisor changes, all 
grade cards, name cards, local 
address cards, home address cards, 
and cards with credit earned, 
transferred, and attempted and 
quality points. Daily duties 
include interviewing prospective 
students as transfers and dis- 
cussing transfer credit, main- 
taining permanent records and 
keeping them up-to-date, final 
evaluation and recording of all 
transcripts , and sending tran- 
scripts (3,009 were sent last 
year) . Various reports and lists 
are the responsibility of this 
office also. Preparing various 
statistical information, pre- 
paring federal and state re- 
ports, classification, hand 
count of all students, listing 
of students in geographical dis- 
tribution, and lastly, sending 
SS 109 forms comes under this 
area. Advisor and class lists 
are kept up-to-date in this of- 
fice, and when changes occur 
copies are sent to the instruc- 
tor, advisor, the Dean, and the 
business office. Preparation 
of all faculty and staff lists 
for any campus convocation, and 
of the exam schedule are also 
the registrar's responsibility. 
One aspect of this office an- 
xiously awaited by each student-, 
is the sending of final grades. 
The graduation of students is 
also the duty of this office. 
Degree plans are filed in one's 
senior year, and are processed 
by this office. Mrs. Russell 
has complete responsibility for 
graduation, except the physical 
set up. Two letters and a card 
are sent to each prospective 
graduate, the card being returned 
by the student designating de- 
sired degree and date expected. 
Correct name to be used on the 
diploma is found out in this 
manner. Each graduating senior 
is interviewed to make certain 
of meeting degree requirements. 
Mrs. Russell invites and en- 
courages all students to come 
in whenever they need assistance. 




Survey One-Oh-One 



By Dean 
Morning, students. 
This is Introductory Survey 
101. For you freshmen, I'll 
explain the system here at Cen- 
tenary College: 94-100=A, 86-94= 
80-86=C, and 70-80=D, and any- 
thing under 70 -you lose. 

Now in this course there 
will be five papers worth 100 
points each, and ten tests worth 
50 points each. All these 
Doints add up. If you tum in 
a paper late you lose ten points . 
II you miss a test you lose 
ten points. We can't do any- 
thing to you anymore if you cut 
class, but I'll guarantee you 
that you'll make more points 
if you come. I call roll and 
make a check by your name if 
you're not here. At the end of 
the semester if you've come to 
class and are on the border- 
line between having enough 
points for a grade or not, 
it will influence my decision. 

Be sure to observe the honor 
code. If the honor court finds 
you guilty of plagiarism you 
will probably get an "F" on 
the work, and lose all the 
points on that paper. If 



Whiteside 

you're found guilty of cheating 
on a test they will give you 
an "F" in the course which 
wipes out all the points you 
B, worked for all semester. 

If you keep a 900 point 
average in three courses you 
can be eligible for the Iota 
honorary society for the success- 
ful completion of surveys. Now 
that's something to work for. 

Did you have a question, 
young man? 

No, I just asked him what 
he got out of the course he had 
you for last semester. 

What did he say? 

863 points. 

Mr. E. J. Williams, Director 
of Food Service announced last 
week that numerous glasses, trays, 
and flatware which are the proper- 
ty of the dining hall are unac- 
counted for at this time. 

This equipment, if not re- 
covered, will amount to a several 
thousand dollar deficit in Food 
Service's buget. To reduce this 
expense Williams has asked each 
dorm resident to gather up any 
dining hall equipment found and 
turn it in immediately to an R. A. 




Cece Russell and Doug Wilson

ment at Lambeth College in Jack- 
son, Tennessee, where the Jackson 
Sun said, "The Centenary players 
have certainly succeeded. They 
challenge all audience members 
to re-examine their own atti- 
tudes toward the only real na- 
tive Americans." 

Meanwhile the students 
in Directing 401 are working 
on their student plays. These 
all will be presented Saturday, 
Dec. 11.

a cast from Byrd High School. 

Finally, Nancy Nader is 
to produce the first section 
from the play "American Hurrah"

the theatre of the absurd, has 
a cast consisting of Jackie 
Schaffner, Mike Gulley, Mary 
Anne Barr, Don Belanger, Adonna 
Sowers, Gary Truitt, Betsy 
Gresham, and Betty Blaklcy.

Into The Ear 
Of Pop: The 

Beach Boys 

By Ray Teasly 

"Radio affects most people 
intimately , person-to-person, 
offering a world of unspoken 
communication between writer- 
speaker and the listener . That 
is the immediate aspect of radio. 
A private experience . The sub- 
liminal depths of radio are 
charged with the resonating 
echoes of tribal horns and an- 
tique drums. This is inherent 
in the very nature of this 
-medium", with its power to turn 
the psyche and society into a 
single echo chamber." 

— from Understanding 
Media, McLuhan 

Thoroughly bathed, as we all 
are , in the vibrations (or echoes) 
of radio with its emotive (hot) , 
tribal force, it is easy for us 
to lose what is really being 
said among the mystic structure 
of the "larger" sound. What I 
mean and what I think McLuhan 
means is that radio hypnotizes 
us , puts us into a kind of sensu- 
al bath, created by the necessity 
of the listener providing other 
needed but missing sensual data. 
Because radio provides only 
sound and not sight or touch 
for instance, the sound takes 
on different characteristics 
than it would if it were accom- 
panied by the other elements of 
sense. The sensual participation 
of the individual listener who must 
himself provide the missing data 
may account for radio's emotive 
or "hot" quality as well as 
its privateness. 

Some would argue that the 
peculiar emotive quality of 
the radio medium is what gave 
rise to the most popular veins 
of rock music. There is little 
doubt that good rock groups ex- 
ploit the medium well with their 
highly emotive sounds and their 
commendable habit of not letting 
the words get in the way. The 
Beach Boys , for instance , are 
a group that produces the kind 
of raw, emotional music that 
fares very well on radio. In 
fact , I think that they offer 
an example of the kind of music 
that fits the medium best . 

It has been said of Brian 
Wilson, the acknowledged creative 
force behind Beach Boy music, 
that he always works for a kind 
of emotional response to the 
sounds. 

"Wis musical theories 
were based upon emotion. He 
could sit down and write a chant, 
anytime, but when he described 
the music it was always in 
artistic or literary allusions , 
colors, mental responses ." 

— David Anderle (friend of 
Wilson/ Oct. 28 Rolling Stone . 

Their new album is really 
no exception. It hardly stands 
as consistently solid music (al- 
though a couple of cuts on it 
are indeed suprising) , but what 
it does perhaps provide is an 
AM radio masterpiece. Hot, 
colorful flashes abound on the 
subliminal level that most radio 
listeners assume most of the 
time. But it is a product of 



ars 
conglomera 




) 





Well, is it or is it not? Art, we mean. You be the judge. 
It is called "Winged Venus with Country Face" and was created 
by Donald Beason . The thing is currently on exhibit at the 
Barnwell Memorial Art Center on the Riverfront. 



masterful engineering more than 
a product of good musical foun- 
dations . 

Let's look at some rock his- 
tory for a moment. The Beach 
Boys were among the very first 
popular music ensembles to em- 
ploy extensive orchestration and 
sound effects and really exploit 
some of the possiblities of the 




recording studio or their records . 
"Pet Sounds" which came out 
several years ago is monumental 
in the history of rock because 
it does just that. Also ask 
yourself: "How many radio com- 
mercials, station break jingles, 
etc. are derived directly from 
Beach Boy sound innovations?" 
They are felt in everything from 
COKE ads to the weather tune and 
if that's not an indication of 
their "radio power" I don't 
know what is. 

Their new album "Surf's Up," 
though a little less consistent 
than "Pet Sounds," also rises 
to sound engineering heights. 
Sound textures produced in songs 



such as "Feel Flows" and "Lookin' 
at Tomorrow" have radio's sense 
of urgency about them. Listening 
to them on a less than normally 
conscious level seems to reap 
more rewards than listening nor- 
mally, in a straight -forward 
manner. There are lots of sub- 
liminal dots to connect. 

Beach Boy lyrics have never 
been particularly entralling. 
"Ba Ba Ba, Ba Ba bra Ann" and 
"I'm getting bugged driving down 
this same old strip" do not 
hold, for me anyway, any kind 
of literate attraction. But, 
again, the medium, not the 
message, is important because it 
is the sound quality, the tex- 
ture of the sounds the words 
make; and not the actual words 
themselves that's important. It 
is this sound quality that 
strikes the ear most pleasantly 
in an indirect, subliminal 
manner, like on the radio^ 

This new Beach Boy album holds 
a few exceptions to their old 
formula. Van Dyke Parks, an 
outsider, wrote some of the lyrics 
which, on ttiis album, really 
stand out. But the music, 
only a little more sophisticated 
(at times) than their earlier 
work, is really beautiful and 
moving, especially when you 
let it echo subliminal ly from 
the walls of your psyche. 
The music is radio sound at 
its finest. 



Radio 

Free 

Shreveport 

by Taylor Caffery 
Ray Burgess is tired of teeny- 
bopper Shreveport radio, and in- 
tends to do something about it. 
Ray, a 21 -year- old Shreveport 
musician, is pressuring established 
radio stations to switch to a 
"progressive" radio format. 
"Sign Uhis list if you 
would support a progressive radio 
station in the Shreveport area, 
with an aware young disc jockey 
responsive to the needs and 
desires of the people of the 
community." That's the text of 
Ray's petition, which he has 
placed around town (one is on 
the SUB bulletin board) at 
Fresh Earth Foods, Stan's, Fan- 
tasia, Leatherhe ad, etc. His 
hope is mat witn enough sup- 
port from prospective listeners 
and advertisers, he can urge 
a local station (any one would 
do, but he'll attack the lower- 
rated broadcasting enterprises 
first) to begin programming 
music "presented in a soft, low- 
key style in a series of musical 
sets. The sets will be an un- 
interrupted blending of the 
music into periods of from ten to 
twenty minutes. Classical, folk, 
jazz, modern, country, all forms 
of good music have similar roots." 
What he wants , in other words , 
is one of what used to be called 
underground stations back in the 
days before low-key radio became 
big money. Ray has listened to 
(or as he puts it, experienced) 
progressive radio in Maine, Cali- 
fornia, and Virginia while doing 
construction work and odd jobs 
in his travels. Since good music 
is aired extensively in other 
areas, I asked him, why bother 
with Shreveport? "I feel this 
is my community," Ray replied. 
"I was born and raised here, 
that's the reason why I'd like 
to get it together here." 

If Ray can swing it right, 
the station which "buys" his 
programming package will include 
him in the deal, as the aware young 
disc jockey mentioned in his 
petition. "I'd like to be a 
part of it, but if just starting 
it is all I can do . . . ." His 
spoken sentence faded, but the 
essence was communicated. 

Optimistic that the projected 
station will need his services 
(although he has been warned 
that the DJ market is hard, 
competitive, tough), Ray is 
applying for his Third Class 
Radio Broadcaster's License 
through the FCC, with a little 
help from a hip DJ friend. 

How will he assure that the 
station will keep a consistent 
programming policy, steadfastly 
refusing to cater to tenny- 
bopper tastes or super -hype 
advertising? That's where the 
petitions come in. "Keeping the 
people a part of it all," Ray 
believes, is the secret, "the 
best safeguard against any 
sort of rip-off."

Little Cites Progress 
And Spirit in Gents 



In a recent informal in- 
terview with the CONGLOMERATE'S 
Sports Editor, first-year head 
coach Larry Little gave his. 
thoughts on the upcoming basket- 
ball season which begins Dec. 1, 
when the Gents host the Lamar 
University Cardinals in the 
opening of the Golden Dome. 
Little dealt mainly with the 
team's progress to date and with 
some of the changes he expects 
in the team's style of play this 
year. 

According to Little, the 
Gents have been making steady 
progress since they began work- 
outs on Oct. 15. One factor in 
this progress has been the ab- 
sence of any serious injuries , 
although several players have 
sustained aggravating ankle in- 
juries. On the problem of re- 
placing center Fred Zitar, last 
year's leading scorer and re- 
bounder, Little stated that both 
Lonnie LeFevTe and John Murphy 
have been making good progress . 
He noted that the Gents would 
be relying heavily on these two 
players to fill the void caused 
by Zitar's graduation. 

At the forward position, 
the problem is depth. During 
the workouts, Little has been 
trying to find another forward 
to bolster "Skeeter" Home, 
Larry Davis, and John Hickerson 
at this position. The guard 
position appears to be the Gents' 
strength as Little pointed out 
that 5-6 players could see con- 
rable action at this position.

The girls' extramural, vol- 
leyball team will be traveling to 
Southern State in Magnolia, Ark. 
on Nov. 20 to participate in a 
tournament. They will be leaving 
at ~:\S a. m. and the first game 
will be played at 10:00 a. m. 
The coach of the team is Miss 
Sharon Settlemire and the fol- 
lowing girls are participating: 

ml in, Yolanda Gonzalez, 
Gay Greer, Netta Hares, Connie

Little continued by descri- 
bing several basic changes in 
the Gents' style of play from 
last year. Probably the most 
basic change will be the use 
of man-to-man defense whenever 
possible. By this change, the 
Gents will try "to take the game 
to the opponent," according to 
Little. When possible, the 
Gents will pressure their oppo- 
nents all over the court. Lit- 
tle believes the Gents can do 
this because of their quickness, 
especially at the guard position. 
He did, however, admit that this 
type of defense will probably not 
be possible against some of their 
opponents . 

Little also said the Gents 
will try to get the ball down the 
court quicker than last year. He 
thinks they can accomplish this 
because of the expected improved 
rebounding with the addition of 
LeFevre and Home. 

.Another encouraging aspect 
of the Gents, mentioned by Little, 
is their over-all team spirit. 
He says the team's "attitude has 
been t remendous - - the best since 
I've been here." He says this is 
largely a carry-over from the 
end of last season when the Gents 
won seven of their last nine 
games. 

Little also gave a very fa- 
vorable report on the new Golden 
Dome. He and the team have been 
very pleased with it and are 
excited about playing in it. 
Little is hoping the unique in- 
direct lighting system will be 
a home -court advantage for the 
team. The Gents have been prac- 
ticing about once a week in Haynes 
Gym in preparation for playing 
road games on wooden floors. 

Little also noted that the 
Gents are pointing toward their 
season opener with Lamar. He 
says the whole team wants "to 
dedicate the gym in the right 
way." He also noted that the 
Gents and Cardinals have de- 
veloped a keen rivalry over the 
last few years , with each team 
beating the other once each of 
the last two years . Little 
also expressed his respect for

well against the Gents last

Luke Adams and Tommy Drees sen

it's like this. The school isn't 
real ly paying for it . The Gents 
Club is. 'Who? The Gents Club is 
a group of local businessmen, 
not necessarily Centenary alums, 
(although 501 of them are) , who 
like athletics, particularly 
Centenary athletics, enough 
to give of their time and money 
towards promoting the program. 
The membership has ranged up- 
wards to include some 275 such 
patrons, but the present mem- 
bership hovers around 100. There 
are two levels of membership, an 
Association Member at SlO.OO and 
a Gents 100 or $100.00 member 
(naturally) . The introduction of 
the latter a few years ago is 
what caused the drop in membership. 

The money gathered by the club 
is given to Centenary Col lege who 
in turn budgets the money to the 
Athletic Department. About 60 s . 
of the funds goes into the re- 
cruiting program. The other por- 
tion covers a wide variety of 
items that add to the quality of 
the program. Besides the exam- 
ple listed above, the money 
has bought a video tape machine 
(no mean investment) and supplies 
the tapes for it (which are not 
exactly giveaways either) , the 
cheerleaders' outfits (although 
since this year will see complete- 
ly new uniforms being ordered, 
the cost has been split with other 
groups) , and some of the fur- 
niture for the offices. Some 
of the training equipment to be 
found in the new dome was ac- 
quired through the support of 
the Gents' Club and they also 
covered the initial expense of 
purchasing the van used in re- 
cruiting, although the college 



lias to supply the insurance and 
other operating expenses. 

For the members themselves, 
sundry breakfasts and luncheons 
complete with guest speakers 
are provided during the course 
of the year, and coffee and cokes 
are provided in their lounge 
during the half-time of the 
basketball games. 

.And when you see some guy at 
the next game complete with 
maroon sweater with the "CC 100" 
emblem, well, everyone must have 
some sort of badge. 

Action in the .Men's Intra- 
mural volleyball double - 
elimination tournament began this 
week. Through Wednesday's games 
Kappa Sig I, Faculty, MSM, Al- 
kies , Theta Chi , Kappa Alpha 
I , and the Off -Campus teams were 
undefeated. 

There are 32 entries in the 
women's ping-pong singles tour- 
nament which is beginning this 
week. 




Early volleyball action has been exciting., but not always 
legal. Above, players from both MSM II and victorious TKE I 
seem to be illegally over the net.

The football season is rea 
ching its climax this week in 
several key games throughout the 
nation. On the college scene, 
the biggest is the Thanksgiving 
Day meeting between Nebraska and 
Oklahoma, the top-rated teams in 
the countiy. Almost as impor- 
tant will be the intra-state 
conflict between Alabama and Au- 
burn on November 27. At stake 
will be the Southeastern Confer- 
ence championship and a possible 
national championship. Another 
big game will be played tomorrow 
night in Baton Rouge , when LSU 
hosts Notre Dame. This is the 
game LSU has been working toward 
since last year's game when the 
Fighting Irish edged them 3-0 
in South Bend. The University of 
Texas will be trying to wrap up 
an unprecedented fourth consecu- 
tive Southwest Conference cham- 
pionship next Thursday when they 
take on the Texas Aggies , who 
have won their last four games. 
Also, the cross -city rivalry 
between USC and UCLA will be 
renewed tomorrow. This game 
does not have the luster it has 
had the last few years since 
neither team has had an out- 
standing season. 

On the pro scene Sunday, the 
division championships are at 



stake in several key games. Dal- 
las and Washington are tangling 
in RFK Stadium in a battle which 
will go a long way in deciding 
the division championship. Going 
into the game, the Redskins hold 
a one -half game lead over the 
Cowboys. The West Coast meeting 
between the Rams and the 49'ers 
and the Colt -Dolphin game will 
also help to decide the champion- 
ships of their respective divi- 
sions. Another game of interest 
in this area will be the Tulane 
Stadium meeting between the 
Saints and the Vikings. The 



Saints will be trying to add the 
Vikings to their list of victims. 

Many of these games will be 
televised in the Shreveport area. 
Please consult "Changing Channels" 
on page 7 of this week's CONGLO- 
MERATE for a complete listing of 
times and stations for these games.

Recipe^ 

Corner 

Gay Greer's Own 
Prize Winning Super 
Speciat Angel Food 
Cake 

1 cup sifted flour 

11/2 cups sifted sugar 

10-12 egg whites 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

1 1/4 teaspoons cream of 

tartar 
1 teaspoon vanilla 

'Sift flour once, measure, 
add 1/2 cup sugar, and sift 
together four times. 

Beat egg whites and salt 
with beater until foamy at 
medium to high speed. Add cream 
of tartar, beat until stiff 
enough to hold up in definite 
peaks, but not dry. Continue 
beating at high speed, adding 
sugar rapidly, 1 tablespoon —JgL^X 
at a time. Beat only until (niPTr) 
sugar is just blended. Add ^NbbV 
flavoring . Remove bowl from 
mixer. Fold in flour mixture 
by hand adding 1/4 of flour 
mixture at a time. 

Turn into ungreased round 
10- inch tube pan" Bake at 375? F 
30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven, 
invert pan, and let stand one 
hour. 

Key steps : 

This cake is leavened just 
with air. Air is sifted into 
the flour; it is beaten into 
an egg white meringue. 

The eggs should be at room 
temperature because they beat 
up more easily and give the 
finest grain and delicacy. 

The flour is folded in with 
rhythmic strokes that cut down 
through the mixture, lift some 
of it up, and roll it over in 
one motion. 

Never grease the pan for 
angel food. The batter must 
cling to the sides in order 
to reach its full height. A 
moderate oven bakes angel 
food so quickly that it 
is wonderfully right, tender, 
and moist.

Free Pictures! 

Involved in last simmer's 
Shreveport park controversies? 
Your pictures are ready! 

City Attorney John 
Gallagher Wednesday has said 
that persons who had their pho- 
tographs taken by Shreveport 
Police during confrontations 
at local parks earlier this 
year may pick up those photos 
at police headquarters. 

Judge Ben C. Dawkins has 
ruled, Gallagher said, that 
photos must be returned to 
persons who did not have war- 
rants issued for their arrest 
during several confrontations 
with police and long-haired 
youths in local parks last 
summer. 

Gallagher said the police 
had been unable to locate a 
number of the persons in 
the photographs and asked 
those who wanted the photos to 
come down and pick them up. 

He said interested persons 
should contact Capt. J. H. 
Byrd in the Department of 
Special Investigation office 
at Shreveport City Hall. 

Music for Fun 
and Study 

The Library has a collection 
of over 900 records of popular 
and classical music and dramatic 
recordings. The speeches of 
Governor Earl K. Long possibly 
classify as dramatic recordings. 
Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, 
Angola Prison Blues, and Mozart 
are also available. The last 
six drawers of the card catalog 
give a compleUfciisting of the 
collection by composer, title, 
and subject. The attendant at 
the Circulation Desk will be 
happy to play library records of 
your choice or your assignment 
in one of the four listening 
booths in the Music Listening 
Room.

LACK OF 
LEADERSHIP 

Once again, we find that the semester has 
closed upon us and the time comes to wind 
down activities in preparation for exams. 
Before we do, however, it might be profita- 
ble to review what has, or has not, happened 
this fall and why. 

The year began in what must be described 
as a flurry of activity; it would have been 
a high level of activity for any school, but 
for Centenary, it was even more unusual, con- 
sidering the history of non-action which had 
plagued this campus for so many years. For 
once, groups of students, faculty and admini- 
strators began to pool their ideas and try 
for real improvements here, socially and 
academically. 

The cry at that time was "communication;" 
and everyone had ideas about how we should 
achieve a satisfactory means of talking to 
one another. The fall President's Conference 
was canceled because it was obvious that 
it was ineffective. Doors were 'opened' in 
hopes of enticing various groups to discuss 
their differences with one another, and there 
were even a couple of Issue and Opinion ses- 
sions during which complaints could be aired, 
projects promoted and plans could be made. 

Well then, why didn't things begin to hap- 
pen? Why was at least half of the college 
community excluded from virtually every col- 
lege activity? The reason, sadly enough, is 
that while everyone was paying a great deal 
of lip service to the communications pro- 
blem, very few people bothered to try to do 
something about it. So, in effect, we are 
right back where we started, group A still 
doesn't know what group B is up to and vice- 
versa. 

The only remedy for this situation as we 
see it, is for the leaders of this college, 
the president, the student representatives 
and the other college officials, to get out 
personally and begin the discussion them- 
selves. This does not mean one speech at 
a poorly -attended chapel at the end of the 
semester; it does not mean periodic arti- 
cles in the Conglomerate complaining about 
the difficulties of a position of leader- 
ship. It means getting out with the mem- 
bers of the college community and talking 
to them personally. This school is not so 
large as to make that job impossible; in 
fact, it is so small as to make such a job 
mandatory and it must be started at once. 

The responsibility for providing the inia- 
tive lies with the officials, the president 
of the college, the elected student repre- 
sentatives, the president of the SGA in par- 
ticular. Until they assume the responsibity, 
■I we do not ieel that they have, then we 

have to be content to remain in our 
stagnant position, virtually wrecking the 
efforts of those who have been working to- 
wards those goals.

Weekly Mail 



Daiell Yes! 

To the Editor: 

The basic requisite to any meaningful 
thought and communication is the clear un- 
derstanding of what is being considered. 
But, we live in an age of euphemism. Terms 
are lost in a contest of pragmatism where 
there is no objective Truth, there are no 
absolute principles, no valid abstractions, 
no firm concepts, that anything may be tried, 
that whatever people wish to be true, is 
true, whatever people wish to exist, exists. 
This anti-intellectualism has pervaded the 
"Establishment" for most of this century, 
and includes the Editor of the CONGLOf.ERATE , 
Doctor Y, Richard Nixon, Edward Kennedy , 
George Wallace, and Jerry Rubin. 

Thus, I've been watching the reactions 
to the views of Jeff Daiell with little sur- 
prise. Such descriptives as Right and Left, 
Conservative and Liberal, freedom and slavery, 
Fascism, Communism, Laissez-Faire, Interven- 
tionism, Anarchism, etc., are used so loosely, 
that they have but lost all meaning. These 
terms all have exact politico-economic meanings 
But, when Mr. Daiell attempts to define them, 
the quagmire of irrationality on campus seems 
to go into dry heaves. 

Left and Right at one time merely referred 
to what side of the French Assembly one sat. 
Today, they are used in reference to every- 
thing from economics to cooking. For clarity, 
we classify Left and Right on the basis of 
control. The Left is egalitarian and the 
Right is anti-egalitarian. In other words, 
Left is collectivist and the Right is in- 
dividualist --the Left strives for equal i: 
the Right for Liberty. Since we are all 
individuals , eadi unique in multitudinous 
ways, the only equality that can exist are 
the rights to Life, Liberty, and Proper: 
The proper function of government should be 
to protect these rights. To venture fur- 
ther is immoral. We then classify all 
collectivism on the Left according to its 
degree, regardless if its rationale is called 
Fascism, Communism, Feudalism, Social 

ire-Statism, etc. 

The sooner we can graduate from the larval 
stage of thought Centenary apparently is in, 
the sooner some meaningful discourse can be 
made and a rational approach to man and his 
world can be found. We, in YAF, are presen- 
ting the ALTERNATIVE to statism and believe 
each individual should be free to pursue 
his own destiny as long as he refrains from 
the use of force or fraud on others. Only 
the underdeveloped mind will not consider 
our position. 

Sincerely, 
David J. Theroux 

Editor's Note: "I would suggest that there 
is no left or right, only an up or down." 
— Ronald Reagan 
So, collectivism is a downer? 

LAST CONGLOMERATE 
This issue marks the final CONGLOMERATE 
of the semester. Target date for the spe- 
cial INTERIM CONGLOMERATE is January 21. 



Abortion No! 

To the Editor: 

With the March For Abortion in Washington 
finished, perhaps it is time to bring once 
more to mind Swift's classic treatise, A 
Modest Proposal . In that dissertation, 
Dean Swift suggested a perfect solution 
to the crisis of Irish overpopulation-- 
and it is certainly applicable to today's 
abortion argument: Swift suggested, simp- 
ly, that Irish babies be eaten. 

Think of the multitudinous difficultues 
such a solution would eliminate for the 
abortion-seeker. 

First, if no woman should be forced 
to keep a baby she doesn't want, she 
could dispense of her child this way. 

Second, it would dispel any problems 
with putting a baby up for adoption or 
signing it away. 

third, it would completely eliminate 
the need for any abortion of an unwanted 
child- -be that operation legal or other- 
wise. Consider the safety improvement 
(at least for the mother) . 
Fourth, it would save much money. 
Fifth, it would provide a welcome 
diversion in the diets of housewives 
across America, and, indeed, the 
world. Soon, of course, besides having 
baby straight, there would come baby souffle, 
baby con carne, baby pizza, babydogs , baby- 
burgers, baby-with-rice, stuffed baby, 
scrambled baby, roast baby, baby under 
glass, poached baby, baby sunny side up, 
baby a la king . . . the list would be end- 
less. What a boost for a flagging America 
economy ! 

Sixth, and perhaps most important, it 
would erase completely any guilt feelings 
anyone could possibly have about sexu 
intercourse, premarital or otherwise. Not 
a prude in the world could consider sex- 
for-food immoral. Sv. have unknowing- 

ly found the answer to TV hypnosis. 

It should be obvious that swift's suggestion 
is the best answer yet, sailing past abor- 
tion and nudging out human sacrifice as 
well. 

Oh, what a stirring thought, to someday 
see thousands of proud women defiantly 
resisting an intolerable encroachment upon 
their liberty, descending upon a quaking, 
guilt -ridden Washington, bearing bravely 
the bold new slogan, CANNIBALISM: A WOMAN'S 
RIGHT TO CHOOSE. 

Jeff Daiell 

Vote For ? 

To the Editor: 

To point out the absurdity of the 
Electoral College, we urge Americans to 
consider the following: 

If McGovern, Nixon, and Wallace are 
the candidates in the 1972 presidential 
election, the best alternative for 
McGovern supporters in Louisiana would be 
to vote for Wallace. Jess Gilbert

RETURN SURPLUS LANDS 

TO INDIANS

dence, pride and motivation through the 
years. Most white people I have talked 
with think this is a tragedy, too." 

Miss Thorpe arrived at the Shreveport 
airport Wednesday afternoon just a few 
hours before her Centenary Forums address 
scheduled for later that night. At an air- 
port press conference, she outlined some 
of the goals of the new Indian movement: 
culture, unity, and most immediately im- 
portant, land. "More lias been done for the 
Indians in the last two years," she repor- 
ted, "than in the last two hundred. Al- 
catraz was the catalyst." 

The entire movement for land and unity, 
she stated, gained tremendous momentum with 
the Indian occupation of Alcatraz Island in 
1969. For too many years whites have been 
taking Indian children away from their cul- 
ture, "taking them away from their families 
at too early an age," Miss Thorpe said. Al- 
catraz, she believed, was the beginning of 
a mass "return to culture and identity." 
Daughter of famed athlete Jim Thorpe, 
Miss Thorpe is executive director of the 
Return Surplus Lands to Indians Project 
(RSLIP) , with national headquarters in 
Davis, California. 

"RSLIP believes that Indians --through 
legal, peaceful means--can win back some 
of the lands that once were theirs," she 
has explained. 

Ron Hodge, a University of California 
law student and a Pequot Indian, is con- 
ducting the legal research necessary to 
change the public laws that provide the 
federal government's criteria for giving 
away surplus land. 

"We want the legal guidelines modified 
so Indian groups are notified of excess 
real property as soon as the governor and

Interim 
Followup 

By Barbara Robbins 
Almost three hundred students have 
signed up for Interim courses; which begin 
January 3, about forty of these to be 
involved in off-campus courses. 

Several courses failed to gain the stu- 
dents' interest. As of Nov. 24, no one 
haJ signed up for Experimental Pri ntmakino 
Introducti on to Linguistics , Hi^n^h 
or Po pular Pictures of flarTan d Mow l h«. r„ n ' 
trol Us . ' ■ - 

"Several courses have less than five people 
signed up. According to Registrar Zama 
Russell, it will be left up to each depart- 
ment to decide if under-enlisted courses 
will be cancelled. Students should contact 
the various course instructors to determine 
whether the course will be held. The per- 
tinent courses are: Contemporary Educatio n 
in Other Societies. R omance Ph ilology The 
Latin Vulgate Bible.^fTn^w.^^^;,,^ 

Seminar , and b lements~of Music . 

Psychic Phenomena drew the largest crowd 
with ^students on the roster. The instruc- 
tors, who plan to "stop" at 100 students, will 
conduct the course by holding morning full- 
class lectures, then dividing the students 
into smaller research/discussion groups 

Students who have yet to register for an 
Interim course, according to Mrs. Russell 
nay still do so up until the courses begin.

The Treen Team Gets 
a Woman s Touch 

By David Eatman 

On Nov. 50, Centenary had an opportunity 
to hear a rather unusual candidate for the 
Louisiana state senate- -a female Republican 
Speaking in the SUB during the morning break, 
Mrs. Sarah Haughton expressed her confidence 
that she would defeat the winner of the up- 
coming Democratic primary, either David 
Carroll or Don Williamson, for the District 
39 seat. 

Classifying both of her potential op- 
ponents as "professional politicians," Mrs 
Haughton claimed that she would initiate a 
new approach to state government through 
the legislature. She believes that this 
will be practical due to the fact that "there 
will be an unprecedented number of Repub- 
licans, women and black legislators." She - 
also stated that cooperation will come from 
the 'Treen Team" in the executive board. 

She justified her optimism on this 
point by citing the results cf the recent 
mock election held at LSU in Baton Rouge 
in which David Treen defeated both Bennett 
Johnston and Edwin Fdwards. Through new 
ideas such as hers, Mrs, Haughton claims, 
"there is no reason why Louisiana should 'not 
be the number one state in the South."

Great Issues 



To the Editor: 

This letter is addressed to all of those 
people who are faced with the "terrible 
ordeal" of taking General Education 402- - 
Great Issues. Everybody at Centenary has 
heard of the course and in most cases , has 
probably only heard unfavorable things 
about it. But here is a plug. Sure, it's 
not always interesting; sure, the reading 
list isn't always fantastic; sure, sometimes 
it interferes with your senior activities 
and senior courses; but give it a chance. 
Isn't ours the open-minded, involved 
generation? I believe that's what we 
call ourselves. Well, if that's what we 
are, be open-minded and don't be afraid 
to get involved with issues and ideas that 
most of us have hardly ever thought about, 
but which desperately need the attention 
that our generation must give to them-- 
controlled state, minorities, education 
and free enterprise, to name a few. 
What can you lose by reading books like 
3 rave New World , Future Shock , The Greening 
of America , and Sheepskin Psychosis? 
Discussion groups aren't all that bad- -you 
can get to know your fellow students and 
your teacher better because it is strictly 

-i discussion of your ideas and opinions, 
id not a textbook lecture from 'yellowed 

utes." 

It's all a matter of what you make it, 
just like everything else. Everybody is 
working toward revisions of the course and 
the faculty are always open to suggestions 
concerning it. So come on, people - -yours 
might be the semester that the revisions 
click; but even still, give it a chance 
and don't knock it before you've tried it. 
You just might learn something.

Women Ponder Fate 
of WSGA 855 

The WSGA Council met Sunday, Nov. 21, 
1971, at 7:30 p. m. , in the study room of 
James Dorm. The meeting was called to order 
by Jeanne Pruden, president. 

Kathy Parrish, treasurer, reported $855 
now in the WSGA treasury. The following 
suggestions of how the money should be 
spent were offered: remodel the lobby of 
Sexton; bicycle racks for the campus; paint 
for girls' dorm rooms; change the key system 
to a card-punch system. 

The card-punch system was suggested by 
Michelle Buell. By doing away with dorm 
keys , each girl would be given a card that , 
when punched into a small box at the door, 
would automatically open and close, locking 
the door behind her. Jeanne Pruden said 
she would write the University of Arkansas 
(presently using the new system) for more 
information. 

Once again the girls' dorms will hold a 
Christmas open house on Sunday, Dec. 5, 
from 7 p. m. to 9 p. m. Refreshments will 
be served in the dorms and all are welcome 
to participate. Also, the suite doors to 
each room will be judged for decoration. 
The judges will be three of our faculty 
members. Prizes will be given to the 
winners . 

The next meeting of WSGA Council is 
set for Dec. 5, at 7:00 in the study room 
of James Dorm. The following topics will 
be discussed: How shall we spend the 
$855; the present penalty system and how 
we may improve it ; number of absentees 
acceptable for ^ouncil members; and any A 
thing else of interest that may arise. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Terry Martin 
Secretary, WSGA 



Ozark Society Just Qcts Naturally 



By Wendy Waller 

Why does the Ozark Society want college 
students? "Because," says president B. B. 
Gibbs , "today's young people are better in- 
formed and more aware of environmental prob- 
lems than we were at their age." Besides, he 
added, "we want to add new life to our group." 

The Ozark Society has a three -fold pur- 
pose: conservation, education and recrea- 
tion. The monthly meetings are centered a- 
round educational films and speakers, but 
outing programs are offered almost once a 
week. Conoeists, campers, hikers and even 
bird-watchers join to explore rivers and 
forests throughout the Ark-la-tex area. 

The Shreveport chapter of the Ozark 
Society, known as the "Bayou" Chapter, ex- 
pects the highlight of next year's outing 
programs to be May 28th and 29th, when the 
third annual Cossatot pilgrimage will 
offer canoe trips (for beginner, intermeo 
and experienced canoeists), back-packing, 
over-night camping, and car tours for the 
lazy ones. In reference to the pilgrimage, 
Gibbs said that he wanted as many people^ 



as possible to see and enjoy this river. 

Outings are open to members and non- 
members as well, and quite a few are planned 
between now and the Cossatot pilgrimage. 
Interested persons should contact B. B. 
Gibbs, 203 Pennsylvania, 868-9570. There 
are also copies of the Ozark Society Bul- 
letin available in the library. 

Don't think that the Ozark Society is 
all fun and games. They are currently work- 
ing, under the leadership of Mr. Wellborn 
Jack, Jr., attorney, to preserve the wild- 
life around the Cossatot River Basin. Last 
January they brought an injunction against 
a Corps of Engineers plan to dam the river. 
Before the dam can be completed, it must 
fulfill the requirements of the National 
Environmental Policy Act. 

The Society has also been instrumental 
in getting the state of Louisiana to buy 
the Poverty Point Indian Mound lands that 
would otherwise have been destroyed. This 
year's goal is to prevent the damming of Bayou 
Dorcheat, west of Minden. 



General Reflections on Generalities — Specif ically 



by Dean Whiteside 
Features Editor 
In his convocation address, President 
John Horton Allen discussed a number of as- 

il, "a fine old 
Amer took a stab at 

question "Wha ;,?ge for?" The 

Lp a student achieve his 
maximum potc: He noted that "the 

future is not li: be improved by mobs, 

e or ignorance," and called for "hard, 
consistent si relieve "half-truths." 

The college was challenged to "not ask too 
lltt! * was prefaced by "Centenary 

must be called opportunit 

Some of the more inspiring catch-phrases 
concerning the college included: 
"One that seeks," 
"the good life," 
"College with a mission," 
"higher calling," 

"that seeks to improve the world," 
and "responsibility to the community." 



The president momentarily mentioned a 
as for the future. He si il 
in general terms) of experimentation with an 
expanded interim program, increased communi- 
ty services, and suggested a =.tcrs 
of Business Administration) program 
Shreveport businessmen. (The desci i 
words "vital," "exciting," and "product i 
were used.) 

Some of the students present were confused 
by the president's remarks. Aside from the 
interim program, it seemed that the faculty 
should keep them busy with the three R's. The 
president's only suggestion concerning the 
preservation of Centenary as a liberal 
arts institution, was to bring in Shreveport 
businessmen. For those who conceive of a 
liberal arts institution as a place where 
middle-class values are challenged and 
evaluated, the presence of the businessman 
needs explaining (unless it is a dying insti- 
tutions 's last-ditch effort to avoid finan- 



cial diaster.) 

The questions left unanswered were, of 
course, not done so intentionally. The 
GLOMERATE extends an on to t: 
dent to answer these and any other questions 
of interest to the college community: The 
college has what problems? What solutions? 
What has been tried, and what has failed? 
What is the status of faculty salaries and 
the number of faculty members for next year? 
(These answers would greatly clarify matters.) 
At the beginning of the convocation it was 
noted that since attendance is no longer man- 
datory, that the entire student body was not 
present. Considering the nature of the ad- 
dress, one might conclude that the number 
present was quite large. If the next con- 
vocation address is too of a similar format, 
perhaps, the mandatory attendance require- 
ment for faculty members should also be 
dropped.

There's nothing on the books which says h 
reservation Indians."

we asked her, among Indians counted 

in one cover-all Indian poli 
'The Indians in the urban situations in 
the cities," she said, "of course have dif- 
ferent problems. In the citic^ they have 
problems of alcoholism, and drug addicts 
and jobs On' reservations they have prob- 
lems with water, and land, and swage. Each 
Indian tribe speaks a different language 
and has a different culture. This can set 
very complex." 

On other subjects, Miss Thorpe discussed 
Indians and women's liberation. 'The Indian 
women generally have been liberated. The 
tribe that I come from, we have medicine wo- 
men .. . not chiefs necessarily, but we 
elected the chiefs .'. .and that happens 
with most of the Indian groups. Within 
the new Indian movement todav , over fifty 
percent of anybody that's involved in these 
sit-ins occupations, or any of that, they're 
women. We had a 67-year-old grandmother 
who went over the fence at Fort Lawton." 

Miss rhorpe was not in the initial group 
ins that landed on Alcatraz in Nov 
, but she did stay there through 
December, January and February. "I recog- 
nized I believe even at that time- -you know 
it's kind of hard to know when you're making' 
history- -but I knew it, and that's why I 
went out and spent Christmas on the rock 
on Alcatraz, and that's why I came back ' 
and closed up my business affairs and went

than that, they did have a messhall, they 
did coo 1 

"1 personally do not agree with going 
• over fences," Miss Thorpe has stated in 
other interviews. I am Indian, however, 

I know the history of lands taken from 
us illegally and at gunpoint and I under- 
stand how this angers and frustrates our 
people- -who mostly have nothing today. 

"Occupations are nonsense, but they 
were the only way to focus attention on 
the Indian problem. They helped, too. More 
has been done for Indians since Alcatraz than 
in the last 200 years. 

"What is important now is that DQU has 
provided us with a formula for acquiring 
lands legally. We will continue to learn 
when property becomes excess and file for- 
m ' applications with specific goals. 

'RSLIP means more than just having land

for air people and helping them become tax- 
payers," said the Indian leader.

Byrd High School . Originally the plav was 
to be staged at Byrd, but that was nixed when 
one of the parents examined the script, so, 
with certain changes, it will be performed' 
in the "shop" at the Playhouse!

itive Council positions. Both Mike Mar- 
cell and Jayce Tohline will not be returning. 
In relation to this, it was brought up that 
the Second Vice-President of the Senate will 
also not be returning and that Senate by- 
required the vacancy to be filled by spec 
election. The person elected on Februar 
will hold office only until the normal Spring

Hamilton Hall 
Papers 

by Kathy Parrish 

The Admissions Office has the main re- 
sponsibility "to provide a program that leads 
to quantity and quality of enrollment desired 
by the college." This duty is performed by 
relating to all the varied constituencies 
of the college, present and former students, 
and the church. Also main in the scope of 
this office are relations to secondary 
schools and junior colleges. Various methods 
are used; some are 1) direct correspondence 
fpromotional materials) , 2) personal inter- 
views , and 3) formal programs . Mr . John 
Schultz, as director of the department, is 
directly responsible to the dean of the 
college. The faculty and its committees, 
especially the Academic Policy and Stan- 
dards, sets the criteria for admission, 
namely, the potential of obtaining a 2.0 
grade point in college work. 

Most of Shultz's time is spent review- ^ 



ing these applications. Other duties of 
"this desk and chair" are 1) setting pro- 
cedures and goals for the office; 2) general 
correspondence, including those initiated 
by the college and those by the applicant. 
He also works with Warren Levingston in 
publication of Dimensions . Schultz 's spe- 
cific duties are 1) membership on the financial 
aid committee, 2) responsibility for orien- 
tation, 3) responsibility for development of 
promotional materials; (last year including 
implementation and printing of the catalogue) ; 
and 4) development of new general service 
in the print shop. In Mrs. Eubanks ab- 
sence, he and Levingston handle the flow of 
activity in the financial aid office. 
Whenever one of the men of the depart- 
ment will be "in the field," all area schools 
are notified well ahead of time whether 
Centenary's representative has been there 
before or not. 

There are four full-time men that travel 
out of this office to actively recruit stu- 
dents to come to Centenary. Two of these 
are Centenary graduates and can give "first 
hand" descriptions. 

David Dent covers Louisiana (abuve Alex- 
andria) , Arkansas , Missouri (except Kansas 
City) . He visits high schools and usually 
sees kids that are familiar with Centenary. 
When asked what approach he used, he an- 
swered (as did the others) that it varies 
with the individual to whom he is speaking. 
He does not fabricate any stories about Cen- 
tenary, but rather spells out exactly the 
advantages and disadvantages of the school. 
He considers the faculty our best selling 
point, while one drawback is the lack of 
specific courses in specialized fields. 
He also explains dorm regulations and the 
general campus atmosphere. 

The other Centenary graduate is Wayne 
Curtis. He explains the advantages of a 
small school, the most important being the 
small classes with personalized attention, 
and no graduate students . As far as social 
life, his phrase is "adequate social life," 
further explaining that Centenary has more 
of an academic orientation rather than a par- 
ty outlook. He does tell them about ath- 
letics at the school with both varsity and 
intramural teams. The community of Shreve- 
port, including climate, also enters into 
his presentation. His area includes Texas, 
Oklahoma (except Tulsa), Kansas, and Kansas 
City, Mo. 

Mr. Ken Weaver covers Tulsa, Oklahoma, 
along with parts of Tennessee, Kentucky, 
West Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina and fi- 
nally Pittsburg, Penn. Directing his atten- 
tion to major metropolitan areas and pri- 
vate schools, "core city schools," and 
suburban area high schools, he also stresses 
the student -faculty ratio; His main con- 
tact is with counselors rather than stu- 
dents. Also stressed in his presentation 
is the advisor set-up and the avilability 
of faculty, staff and administration. Fi- 
nally he feels the quality of students at 
Centenary is shown by the lack of any large 
problems like those experienced at other 
institutions of higher learning. 

Other areas covered by the office are 
Washington, D. C. , Lake Charles, Miami, 
Atlanta, and that area enclosed by these 
boundaries are the responsibility of Warren 
Levingston. He goes to high schools, homes, 
and local churches talking to students. He 
also contacts alumni in the area. Keying 
his approach to the student's school and 
interest, he lets the individual respond to 
him first. If there are not any students in- 
terested in Centenary, he speaks with the 
counselor, emphasizing the same aspects of 
Centenary as the others. 

Psychics 

'On the face of it, foretelling the future 
accurately is impossible. How can an event 
that has not yet happened or even begun to 
develop be known to someone ahead of time? 
Some predictions are of events that occur 
the next day; others happen years later. 
Unless we are willing to re-examine the very 
nature of 'time,' these things cannot be ac- 
counted for. "- -psychic- investigator Hans 
Holzer. 

WILL THE CONGLOMERATE SINK? 

Next semester, John Wafer steps down, to 
become features editor, Taylor Caffery assumes 
the editorship, and Ray Teasley becomes news 

1 editor. What's your role? Call us, 
JgT»S69-5269 or 423-6040. Volunteers 
needed '.

Spring Film Fare 



The Entertainment Committe and the Con- 
cert and Lecture Committe announced the 
spring semester list of films to be shown on 
campus last week, and to the CONGLOME RATE'S 
delight, the fare calls for more than the 
normal number of showings and represents 
a much more varied program than has been 
seen here in the past. 

January will have two offerings, "Camelot" 
on January 7th with Richard Harris and Julie 
Andrews, and 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre" 
on January 20th starring Humphrey Bogart and 
considered by many to be one of his best. 
3 "Bonnie and Clyde" comes up on Feb. 4, 
which nearly everyone has seen, but if you 
like plenty of shooting, bullet holes, etc., 
plus a very sensual Faye Dunaway climbing 
all over Warren Beatty, you might want to 
see it again. Feb. 9 will mark the begin- 
ning of the new "Art Film Series," which is 
sponsored by the Concert and Lecture Com- 
mittee, with the Brazilian film, "Black 
Orpheus," directed by Marcel Camus and 
featuring a musical scare written by An- 
tonio Carlos Jobim, (I have been trying to 
see this one since 1959 when it was released, 
but have never succeeded in placing it and 
myself in the same twon at the same time 
until now; I have heard the soundtrack, 
though, and if you like Job in, or if you 
have never heard him, this is an absolute 
'must see.') Nine days later, on Feb. 18, 
Sandy Dennis stars in "Up the Down Stair- 
case," another one of the SGA-sponsored 
films. February 23 finally brings to Cen- 
tenary what many have been demanding for a 
long, long time: Bergman, This one is "ine 
Seventh Seal," set in a Black Death ravaged 
Europe, with Max von Sydow and Bibi Andersson , 
(both seen lately in 'The Touch," both very 
good in what was otherwise a disappointing 
film). 

Centenary's contingent of 'young moderns' 
will be glad to see that they have not been 
entirely forgotten as Steve McQueen comes 
riding onto campus (on whatever he happens 
to be high on at the time) in "Bullit." He's 
a very today cop in this one, snazzy bike 
and the whole bit. That happens in March 3rd. 
Then, on March 16th and 22nd, we will be 
treated to two art films in a row. Russian 
Sergei Parajanov directed "Shadows of For- 
gotten Ancestors" is the first, employing 
"unreal colors, improbable- camera angles, 
and precarious balance between ritual and 
orgy," according to Cahiers du Cinema in 
Engl ish . The second is one ot Francois 
Truffaut's finer offerings, "Jules and Jim" 
with Jeanne Moreau and Oskar Werner, 
another very definite must. 

Time marches on and we find ourselves 
carried back to Edna Ferber's Texas on March 
7th, with Janes Dean and Elizabeth Taylor 
playing with oil wells in "Giant," an extra- 



Page 7 

vaganza depicting a very extravagant period. 
"Playboy of the Western World," directed by 
J. M. Synge, represents one of Ireland's 
contributions to the cinematic world. "Joe" 
comes on March 21st; that's the film about 
the middle -class backlash against the New 
Left; confirms the dark, brooding suspicions 
all liberals have about conservatives. 

May begins with "Rashomon," directed by 
Akira Kurosawa. This Japanese film was 
recognized as the Best Foreign Film at the 
1952 Academy Awards presentations, and 
includes some excellent photography. May 
12th and 13th bring a Horror Festival to 
Centenary, including 'Taste the Blood of 
Dracula," "The Frozen Dead" and 'Trog." 
You'll have to see them for yourself, I 
know nothing about them (what the hell 
is a Trog?) 

A complete list of the films and their 
play dates is posted on the bulletin board 
in the SUB. Check it and try to see a 
few.

Warning 
to Bikers 



Results of a recent inquiry conducted by 
the Louisiana Department of Public Safety hav< 
revealed that an estimated 11,000 persons in 
the state are driving motorcycles without 
having the proper motorcycle endorsement on 
their operator's license. 

William E. Dent, Jr., Director of the De- 
partment, said that the public is presently 
being alerted to the requirement for such an 
endorsement . ' 

Dent said figures show that approximately 
15,000 motorcycle endorsements have been is- 
sued on regular operator's licenses from 
January to June this year while the Depart- 
ment of Revenue figures show that 26,829 
motorcycles have been registered. 

The Director said that any motorcycle 
operator who rides his bike oh the roads and 
highways of this state must have a motorcycle 
endorsement on his license or face being 
charged witli having an improper operator's 
license. 

The motorcycle endorsement costs $1.50, 
in addition to the cost of the regular 
operator's license, and consists of the no- 
tation of the motorcycle endorsement in the 
restriction column of the license. 



Guilt 

•The mortification bom of a shameful ' 
act does not usually last long. With most 
people it passes within forty-eight hours 
And yet each mortification as it passes 
leaves a stain and a blemish on our feeling 
of well-being. Thus gradually an under- 
current of self-contempt begins coursing 
within. us.. and now and then it leaks out 
in bitterness and hatred toward others 
it is in rare moments when we have a parti- 
cular reason to be satisfied with ourselves 
that we realize the depression and dejec- 
tion secreted in us by a guilty conscience "-- 
Eric Hoffer.

A SUB Proposal 

Editor's Note: The following article is a progress report from the SUB Renovation 
Committee'. It is printed here as it was written by that committee. 

Following the distribution and collection 



of the SUB Project questionnaire tabulation 
of responses revealed this pertinent informa- 
tion: With regard to possible subdivisions 
of the one large space, 189 students desired 
a recreational room, 179 students desired a 
stereo room, 172 students desired a T.V.room, 
and 163 students desired a room in conjunction 
with the Snack Room which would reflect a 
particular theme. 

With regard to particular themes, 131 
preferred Ye Old English Inn, 79 preferred 
Mod, and 51 preferred a Mississippi River 
Boat theme. With regard to the ways in which 
rooms would be separated from one another, 
31 preferred stationary partitions, 99 pre- 
ferred sliding partitions, and 81 preferred 
both. With regard to those who would be 
willing to help in the renovation project, 
198 students volunteered. 

Based on the above findings the SUB Pro- 
ject Steering Committee came to the following 
preliminary decisions: A wall composed of 
several movable partitions should be con- 
structed to separate the area of the SUB 
between the stage and the Snack Bar from the 
area of the SUB allocated to the game tables. 
The former area would be used to fulfill the 
request for a snack room with a particular 
theme. The latter area would be used to 
fulfill the request for a recreational room. 
Secondly, a wall composed of a few mov- 
able partitions would be constructed to close 
off the alcove which currently contains some 
vending machines and two pool tables . This 
room would become a stereo room. The vending 
machines would be relocated in the recrea- 
tional room area as would be the two pool 
tables. 

The theme for the snack room would be 
Ye Old English Inn, the theme for the re- 
creational room would be the Mississippi 
River Boat, and the theme for the stereo 
room would be Mod. Decor and furnishings 
for these rooms will be decided upon follow- 
ing careful research on the part: of members 
of the Design and Construction Committee. 
The T.V. room on the stage and the current 
Snack Bar would be left "as is." 

There was also consensus among the mem- 
bers of the Steering Committee regarding 
the order in which the project should be 
undertaken. It was thought that the pool 
tables and vending machines in the alcove 
should be relocated first. Second, the par- 
titions dividing the space into three rooms 
should be constructed. These partitions 
should be decorated on the appropriate sides 
to reflect the decor of the rooms toward 
which they face. Third, the walls of the 
Snack Room should be redone to conform with 
the Old English Inn theme. Fourth, the de- 
cor of the Mod room should be completed and 
the stereo equipment installed. Fifth, the 
decor of the recreational room should be 
completed. 

FINANCING THE PROJECT -- HOW YOU CAN HELP 

Finances for the project will be raised 
by asking all persons affiliated with Cen- 
tenary College to contribute one or more 

ling stamp books to the project. These 
affiliates will include students and their 
parents, faculty, administration, alumni, 
the church, the Board of Trustees, and anv 



others who would be interested. In this way 
it should be possible to raise the equiva- 
lent of several thousand dollars through an 
almost "painless" process. Stamp books may 
be of any brand and may be either hand de- 
livered to any member of the Steering Com- 
mittee or sent in the mail to: G. Edwin 
Miller, Jr.; Dean of Students; Hamilton Hall, 
Room 127; Centenary College; Shreveport, 
Louisiana, 71104. 



The following is a timetable for comple- 
tion of the planning and construction phases 
of the project: From the present time until 
March 1, 1972: Collection of the trading 
stamp books and ordering of materials. From 
the present time until March 1, 1972: Fina- 
lization of plans for construction, decora- 
tion, and coordination of student volunteer 
assistance. From February 1, 1972 through 
March 1, 1972: Finalization of all planning. 
From March 1, 1972 through April 15, 1972: 
Construction and decoration of as many areas

CONGLOMERATE 



December 3, 1971 



WW&MW WM 






By Joseph B. Treaster 
Reprinted from The New York Times 

NEW HAVEN- -The stern, sober faces of for- 
mer deans and famous alumni of Yale Univer- 
sity still look down from the oak-paneled 
walls in Commons on hundreds of student 
diners . 

But in a large section of the univer- 
sity's biggest dining hall, the favorite 
old dishes like roast beef and mashed po- 
tatoes have given way to such delicacies 
of the seventies as soybean patties, vege- 
table chili and Good Shepherd cereal. 

In place of the catchup and relish, 
there are huge bowls of wheat germ, brewer's 
yeast, organic peanut butter and honey and, 
of course, unrefined sugar. 
• All the vegetables are fresh and some- 
what undercooked, and nothing is fried. There 
are safflower and peanut oil for the chopped 
lettuce salad; five kinds of tea, a variety 
of breads baked with unbleached flour and 
without chemical additives , and plenty of 
yogurt . 

Yale has gone into the health food 
business . 

The decision to shift from the tradi- 
tional came as increasing numbers of stu- 
dents were drifting away from the campus 
dining halls . 

The official excuse many students gave 
to get out of their university meal con- 
tracts was that they were vegetarians. Some 
were, but many others just wanted to get 
away from the sauces, gravies, mushy vege- 
tables and fried foods that for years have 
been so much a part of the American way of 
eatiqg . 

There was a time, said Albert E. Dobie, 
the director of food services at Yale, when 
he thought of health food enthusiasts as 
"quacks^-a definite minority," and didn't 
pay much attention to them. 

But, he went on, "You begin to observe 
and talk with these people, and you find 
they have some solid ideas. So you begin 
to cater to them." 

Both Mr. Dobie and Mrs. Jane Lewis, the 
executive dietitian at Yale, have started 
reading books by advocates of simply pre- 
pared natural foods . 

Although the health food restaurant has 
been open only since the latter part of Oc- 
tober, it is now serving dinner to roughly 
10 per cent of Yale's 4,800 undergraduates. 

At present the new restaurant offers 
only the evening meal. But Mr. Dobie is con- 
sidering expanding the dining area and of- 

:tg lunch. 

He said he also plans to offer some of 
the more popular health food dishes like 
pinto beans goulash and lentil cakes in the 
other campus dining halls. 

Wheat germ, special cereals and brewer's 
yeast --a popular source of protein and B vi- 
tamins- -are already available in the dining 
halls of the 12 residential colleges, many 
of which have also begun to serve brown rice 
at least once a week. 

"Brown rice," Mr. Dobie said with a slight 
smile, and a knowing look, "is the perfect 
food. It's four parts Ying and one part Yang." 

University officials say it is too early 
for them to tell for sure, but they believe 
that the health food meal is slightly more 
expensive to serve than the regular fare. 
Nevertheless , for the moment at least , the 
price to students is the same for either 
kind of dinner: $2.25. 

Student comments have been simple and 
direct. They like the new restaurant be- 
cause the "food tastes good." 

"It's not greasy, it's fresh, and they 
don't cook it until it dies," said Peter St. 
Clair, a sophomore from Glen Ridge, N. J. 

Several students wrinkled their noses 
at the mention of hamburgers and French 
fries: 'They have a lot of calories and 
they make your face break out." 

Mr. Dobie said he hopes to be able to 
begin serving pork, veal, lamb and perhaps 
some omelets and chow mein dishes. 

"We've stayed completely away from 
beef because some vegetarians become almost 
ill at the sight of red-blooded meat," Mr. 
Dobie said. 



For Michel Le Borgne, the university's 
executive chef, who studied at Ecole Hotelerie 
de Tours and worked briefly at La Caravel 1 and 
the Four Seasons in New York, the adventure 
into health foods has been a source of frus- 
tration. 

Steaming and boiling- -which is what many 
health food preparations call for- -is too 
easy for him, and he says he feels his 
work is incomplete without sauces and spices. 

"I ask the dietician and Mr. Dobie if 
I can doctor the food a little. You know 
make it taste good," Mr. Le Borgne said. 
"But they always say, 'no.'" Rapidly 
slicing cauliflower, Mr. Le Borgne said 
he was shocked when he discovered a note 
from a student saying the food was "terrific." 

"I don't call that 'terrific,'" he ex- 
claimed, turning toward a row of steaming 
pots. "Any guy who calls himself a cook can 
do these things. I call 'terrific' a good 
selle de veau Orlof f or a good tenderloin 
Wellington." 

Then he sighed. "I guess I have to 
please our customers . I 'm not at the Four 
Seasons or Caravelle."

FEATURES SERVICE 

SPEEDING ON A 
STARVATION DIET 

(AFS) It may be good for you- -if you 
don't do it too much. It can even get you 
high, and lengthen your life. If it could 
be bottled, it could be on the shelves of 
the corner drug store, or at least in the 
stash of your friendly neighborhood pusher. 
What is this exotic wonder? Why, nothing 
but STARVATION! 

Biochemically, starvation has been 
defined as the metabolic state of an animal 
whose muscle tissue is being broken down 
to supply energy to its brain cells. In 
other words, the grisly stories of the 
man who, starving to death, cuts off 
his foot, cooks and eats it to save his 
life, is the story of a man who is ignorant 
of the fact that his cells have long since 
made the decision to utilize his muscle 
protein to keep him going and are already 
doing it more efficiently than he could 
by self -cannibalizing. 

An even stranger fact has been reported 
by Vernon Young and Nevin Scrimshaw in 
Scientific American , October 1971: four 
hours after a meal, the normal, healthy 
human begins to break down muscle protein 
to supply calories to the brain- -biochemically 
a starvation ration. This doesn't mean 
that you should eat every four hours. (It 
would distrub your sleep at night.) The 
protein-to-sugar-to-protein cycle is quite 
efficient and the muscle protein gets put 
back as soon as you eat again. 

The body has good reason to work this 
way. The liver can store only about 350 
calories worth of sugar, and it hangs on 
to most of this for emergencies . The 
brain alone uses around bo calories per 
hour,, so the liver can supply energy to 
the body between meals for only a few hours . 
Something has to give. So the muscles 
supply alanine (an amino acid constituent of 
protein) to the liver and kidneys , and they 
tum it into glucose. 

Most of this glucose goes to the brain. 
(Energy for the rest of the body comes from 
triglycerides stored in fatty tissues.) Later 
on, when food brings in carbohydrates and 
proteins, glucose going to muscles will 
break down to pyruvate, which combining with 
nitrogen from newly ingested protein will 
give us alanine again. (Some of the alanine, 
of course, will come from the ingested pro- 
tein.) 



Naturally, prolonged starvation can be 
bad for you unless you are overweight. Even 
when it's clear you should eat enough protein 
to keep your muscles from shrinking away 
along with your fat. But what about moderate 
doses of starvation? Yogis and mystics have 
extolled the virtues of regular tasting. Long 
life, spiritual insight, visions, and renewed 
energies are promised. 

Clive McCay at Cornell, in the 30 's, 
showed that depriving pre -puberty rats of 
half their normal caloric intake doubled 
their life span. However, these rats lived 
longer by staying juvenile longer- -the food 
deprivation stopped their growth, but they 
stayed healthy. When McCay put them back on 
a normal diet, they rapidly grew to adult 
size and maturity, aged and died. Other 
researchers have shown that rats deprived of 
all food twice a weak live longer but grow 
and mature more slowly. So fasting can 
lengthen your life if you start early 
enough and don't mind being a Peter Pan. 

Now here is the piece de resistance . 
Byron Campbell and Hans Fibiger report in 
Nature , October 8, 1971, that starvation has 
an effect similar to amphetamine on the 
nervous system. Amphetamine induces arousal 
by releasing and increasing the turnover of 
catechol amines that transmit signals from 
one nerve cell to another. 

How could starvation have a stimulating 
effect? Other researchers have shown that the 
key is likely to be serotonin , the catechol 
amine inhibitor, and therefore the nerve signal 
transmission inhibitor, serotonin inhibits 
dreaming, hallucination, alertness, and even 
sexual arousal. Many psychedelics (such as 
LSD and DMT) are structurally serotonin 
analogues and get you high by pretending to 
be serotonin but not doing serotonin's job 
of inhibiting nerve signals. But to make 
serotonin, the body needs a steady supply 
of tryptophan, the only amino acid with the 
indole ring that is the structural basis 
for serotonin. 

Is it any wonder that people who fast 
for prolonged periods see visions, have 
enormous mental energy, and talk like 
acid heads. Their serotonin level is 
bound to be low. (Schizophrenics tend to 
have a chronic low level of serotonin in 
their blood.) Thus biochemistry forges 
another link between fasting saint and 
speeding sinner. 

Student Activities 
Committee Report 



The Nov. 16 meeting was called to order. 
The co -educational dorm proposal submitted 
by the Executive Council was discussed. 
The first objection raised was that 
section #3 should be stricken because a 
committee should not have to judge a person's 
ability to live in a co-ed dorm because of 
morals. The selection should be on a first 
come basis. 

The next objection was toward the word 
"experimental." The consensus of the com- 
mittee was that this would allow someone a 
loophole in which they could alleviate the 
experiment without trying to solve the 
problem. 

The committee then decided on the handling 
of the proposal where the committee will 
alter it and pass it on instead of returning 
it to the Senate. 

The motion was made and seconded that 
Section I be accepted as is. (This includes 
the statement of proposal.) 

After some discussion, an amendment to 
Section I was made changing the dates 
to read "beginning fall of '72." 

The discussion led the committee to 
presume that the dorm council of the 
co -educational dormitory would be indepen- 
dent of the WSGA. 

Questions were called for and voting 
was unanimously in favor of retaining Sec- 
tion I as amended. 

The committee then heard the motion to 
accept Section II. This motion was secon- 
ded. Discussion then led to a general con- 
sensus that a balance is not really neces- 
sary, but that some type of fluctuating 
percentange of "on campus" people be used 
to set the percentage needed to open a 
dormitory as a co-educational dormitory. 
As it was time to adjoum, a motion 
and second was heard that this proposal 
be placed first on next meeting's agenda.

^onliness and the 

Trials of Being 
Without-. A Book 
Review 

The Onion Eaters, by J. P. Donleavy, Dial 
Delacorte Press, $7.95 

Clayton C 1 aw Cleaver Clementine, des- 
cended directly in the male line from 
Clementine of the three glands, sits in 
Charnel Castle guarded by his faithful 
dog Elmer who refuse's to walk. Clementine, 
a simple person, who simply follows where 
each day might lead, tiying to reap what- 
ever the day might provide, fearing lone- 
liness only slightly more than intrusion, 
abiding always by his few small command- 
ments: 

Thou shalt not pick nose, nor fart 
loudly in another's proximity, 
nor within another's sight p]ay 
too robustly with the privates. 
Nor stick the prick where it is not 
wanted. Just a little belching 
is to be allowed. Not to end up 
being the man folk show their 
children. To say don't grow up 
dilapidated like him. 
But life is not easy. Even for a -man 
like Clementine who wants simply to live 
with the least amount of friction. Losing 
a father whose only worth was giving Clemen- 
tine his mother and then losing her. Doled 
out pittances by his aunt, near death in a 
hospital until revived by a nurse using 
undoctorly methods, and journeying across 
the ocean to find Charnel Castle, quiet 
in the country, abandoned to him by the 
aunt who still supplies no money. 

But Clementine's new life at Charnel 
Castle fared no better than earlier, though 
somewhat livelier. The world always seems 
to intervene. First there is Time the 
seven foot blind man who helped carry the 
luggage, including Elmer, then the servants 
who seem to appear out of the wood work, 
Percival the footman, Miss Ovary the cook, 
Ena the upstairs maid, Imelda downstairs, 
Oscar the boy, and Charlene, beautiful 
Charlene. Then the outside world intrudes 
and the scientists come, measuring, calcu- 
lating, excavating, transporting deadly 
Mambas and Rose. There are three, Franz 
Decibel Pickle, George Putlog Roulette, and 
Erconwald, just Erconwald. Then the neigh- 
i irs visit. Jeffry "Nails" Macfugger who 
. rries a ceremonial pot to piss in and Lady 
Gail Allouise Trudy Macfugger with the 
lovely golden hair. And others, Bloodmom, 
met on the boat over, the Baron, Bligh, 
Veronica with her photo albums of all the 
men and women she has slept with, Gloria 
who can have a climax at any given moment 
and the Lead Kindly Lights , Mr . and Mrs . , 
crusading evangelists. 

Poor Clementine finds himself beset 
upon by deadly snakes, explosions, fires, 
excavations , lake monsters , the unseen 
Clarence who skips about the countryside 
spying on sexual perversions, and the army, 
come to put down the insurrection whereever 
it may be. 

Clementine moves through it all, some- 
times searching slightly for something, 
not really knowing what, but mainly running 
just to keep a few steps ahead. He longs for 
the quiet life, maybe with Charlene nestled 
by his side, but makes no commitments for 
fear of entanglements. 

Clementine is scared to death of the dark, 
of being alone, of death itself. At his far- 
thest down he figures he "could go on sleeping 
now. Till the last hour of dying. Where 
I've been before. Praying it hurts less 
than living." But Clementine has the power 
to rise to each occassion, to return to 
Charnel Castle, to pick up the pieces or 
simply to leave the pieces lying and go on 
without them. Life may hurt but it's worth 
the trouble. "When you think a moment, 
there's more to life than fuchsia, grass, 
and granite." And Clementine in his running 



(it's hard to tell whether he's chasing 
or being chased) intends to find what more 
there is. And does.

RECORD REVIEWS 



LOST IN THE OZONE 
Commander Cody and His Lost Planet 
Airmen are probably the only band in the 
entire San Francisco area that everybody 
likes. Their music ranges from Buck Owens 
standards like "Family Bible" to rockabilly 
numbers like 'Twenty Flight Rock" to crazy 
Cajun songs like "Diggy Diggy Lo" to ... . 
Well, they must have 400 songs in their 
repetoire, at least that was the number about 
three weeks ago, and they've probably added 
a dozen by now. And everybody I know who's 
listened to their long-awaited debut album, 
Lost In the Ozone (Paramount PAS 6017) likes 
it--loves it, in fact--but they all have 
different ideas about what should be on it. 
If you haven't heard them yet, you really 
must, but at least you won't be as preju- 
diced about what's on the album, so that I 
can say unconditionally that if you pick 
it up, you'll wind up loving it too. 

It certainly is one of the best al- 
bums of the year, and if their rockin' 
"Home In My Hand" doesn't get to you, their 
psychedelic country weeper "Down to Seeds 
and Stems (Again)" will, and if you don't 
like that, the live version of "Beat Me 
Daddy Eight to the Bar" will send you 
careening around the room. 

Their love for everything they do is 
evident "rom every cut. and make no mistake 
about it --this is no hippie country band or 
rock revival band or anything like that. Com- 
mander Cody and the boys are a rock and roll 
band in the great tradition, and are destined 
for great things. You owe it to yourself to 
get lost in the Ozone with them. 

- - -Ed Ward (AFS) 

TUPELO HONEY 

Well, I must admit I had my doubts, but 
they were put to rest when I finally heard 
Van Morrison's new album, Tupelo Honey (War- 
ner Brothers WB 1950) . Sure is good. True , 
it's not Astral Weeks , and he may never command 
such heights again, but it's fine. Sort of 
Caledonia_Soul Music, just like Van's music 
publishing firm. Funky, relaxed, but with the 
tension that is unique to Van Morrison. 

"Wild Night," which leads the album, 
is one of those records you just know is gonna 
make it to the top ten, and 'Moonshine Whis- 



key," the last cut, is just as goofy as if 
Van had been messing with it before they 
turned the tape recorder on. 

What's in between those two cuts is of 
varying quality, but such numbers as 'Tupelo 
Honey," 'When That Evening Sun Goes Down," and 
I Wanna Roo You" are really top-notcn rocx 
and roll. I do like the darker side of 
Morrison's personality quite a bit, and 
it seems a shame to see him repressing it 
a bit. 

---E. W. 
SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE 

There's A Riot Going On , says the cover 
of Sly and the hamily Stone's new album 
(Epic KE 30986), and it's probably caused by 
people who bought this monotonous set and 
are trying to lynch Sly's ass. Sure, the 
hit "Family Affair" is a gas, but the rest 
of the album is unmitigated boredom. Poison.

Duane Allman. Late lead of the 
Allman Brothers Band. 

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND AT 
FILLMORE EAST 

It will be very crowded when the Allman 
Brothers Band comes to New Orleans ' Warehouse 
New Years ' Eve because , despite the recent 
death of their leader, Duane, there will be 
more boogie for your dollar there than any- 
where else. If you've heard The Allman Broth - 
ers Band at Fillmore East you know that al- 
ready. 

The album begins with a classic stomp, 
"Statesboro Blues." The stinging slide 
guitar and dirty couplets are an invocation 
of their roots. Another warm-up blues fol- 
lows, then "Stormy Monday Blues" finally 
exercises the head full of cocaine we might 
presume they sniffed backstage. It slows 
things down and establishes a point of ref- 
erence for us. 

Side two's "You Don't Love Me" is a nine- 
teen minute flash of dynamics in blues ly- 
ricism. Shortly into the song this monster 
cooking machine of a band quits and the clear 
notes of a single guitar begin a long, 
controlled shuffle the band quits and the 
clear notes of a single guitar begin a long, 
controlled shuffle and gybe tha*" eventually 
becomes a high country riff. The passage 
is resolved as all the instruments merge 
into a "traintime" lick that sounds like 
Ten Years After at their live best. It 
goes beyond Alvin Lee, though, when Duane 
and the other lead guitarist, Dicky Betts, 
slide into the synchronous double picking 
that they were righteously famous for. 

In "Hot 'Lanta" the textures become more 
up-tempo and jazz-like. It is a fitting 
bridge between their early blues and "In 
Memory of Elizabeth Reed," the masterpiece 
that they first recorded on their second 
album. It is possible that as a composer 
Dicky Betts will take us further into the 
ozone than Duane Allman would have if he 
had lived. Duane 's native feeling was for 
note-perfect blues chops. Betts' phrasing, 
however, is more diverse and adventurous in 
its interplay between rhythm and harmonic 
structure . 

Side four's twenty-two minute version 
of "Whipping Post" is faster and lighter than 
the Killer original. Get a copy of the first 
album, The Allman Brothers Band . It, too, is 
a consistently beautiful album. Their music 
was just as tight and gutsy then as it is 
now. And if you can live with the hordes at 
the Warehouse, get down in front of the 
speakers and get off on the river of power 
that will be flowing. It's probably the 
finest rock the South has ever produced.

Elizabeth Friedenberg 
Shows Homecoming Exhibit 



Artist Elizabeth Friedenberg has developed 
a special art exhibit for the Centenary home- 
coming which opened at the Art Gallery in 
the Library Wednesday. 

The exhibit, entitled "Reminiscences" 
will feature some of the works of Miss 
Friedenberg 's early career with some of the 
same subjects treated as she sees them tod;; 

"I was looking over some old sketches and 
began to wonder just how I would handle the 
same subjects today," said Miss Friedenberg. 
'The paintings in this exhibit are the 
results of my self- investigation." 

The exhibit includes 14 paintings , 5 
small street scene paintings, made from 20 old 
sketches, which will also be on display a- 
long with the up-to-date treatment of the 
same subjects . 

Some of Miss Friedenberg 's paintings are 
entitled, "Cane Break," "Lead A New Life," 
"Committee in Charge of Repairs," "When 
Cotton was Hand-Picked," "Market at Travis," 
and "Sunday Outing." 

Tli? exhibit will be on display during 
the regular library hours and during home- 
coming for the benefit of the former students 
who are returning for their annual reunion.

Lecherous Portuguese 
on Library Wall 

Dr. David C. Kimball has given the Cen-

watercolor by Martin Burniston who has pain- 
ted extensively in France, Connecticut, and 
Shreveport. Mr. Bumiston is particularly 
noted for his portraits. 

A story comes with the Portuguese Fisher- 
man to the effect that Dr. Kimball, one of 
the leading gynecologists in Shreveport, had 
him on the walls of his inner sanctum in 
his office complex on Fairfield Ave. From 
the beginning, the ladies objected to being 
examined in the Portuguese's presence. Dr. 
' Kimball held out for several months but 
final 1 agreed that the Fisherman had to go 
for tr -ake of business. The Centenary 
Library, which always welcomes Dr. Kimball's 
frequent gifts of pictures and books, has 
willingly supplied a new home for the Por-

their dimes in the Library Xerox. Thank you

The Centenary College De ill 

travel to Longview, Texas, for tiie LeTourneau 
College Debate Tournament, to be held Dec. 
3 and 4. Entering in debate and extempora- 
neous speaking will be David Eatman and Jim 
Shuey, and entering in original oratory will 
be Don Belanger and Betsy Gresham. The 
same foursome will attend the Louisiana Tech 
Toum anient the following weekend, according 
to Ruth Alexander, the team's adviser. 

Geologists Spend 
Holidays Tripping 

Dr. Nolan Shaw of the Geology department 
led a group of students to the southwestern 
parts of the United States over the Thanks- 
giving holidays, to study various areas and 
formations. Carlsbad Caverns (where bats 
abound) and the White Sands testing area 
in New Mexico, and McDonnald Observatory 
and Big Bend in Texas were the trip 
highlights. 

Accompanying Dr. Shaw were Jerry 
Alagood, Georgianna Ashford, Dean Baker 
(probably, they say, the only one who learned 
anything), Gene and Sara Caldwell, George 
Norman, Mark Schroeder, Ed Merritt, Sam 
Brown, and Billy Rogers. 

The Geology department is sponsoring 
a "rock festival" in Mi IS, department 
office spaces, during school days, at 
which various rocks, minerals, and 
special kits will be placed on sale. 71 
may be used for rock gardens; display, 
collection, stud)', etc. 

Bikers Pedal Their 
Wares 

Feel up to a fifty-mil- 
Members of the now-forming Ride on Bicycle 
Club expect this to be among their projects, 
once the Shreveport club is established'. 

Founders Buddy Daniels and David School- 
field don't want members to pay club fees 
or buy anything, "let's just get togetl 
and ride," they say. 

The club would be especially active in 
pressing for bicycle lanes on streets, 
and for bike-related safety education for 
both cyclers and automobile drivers to 
overcome the problems created when "cars 
think they own the road." 

Club events would center around weekend 
trips and events, with longer holiday jaunts 
when possible. Centenary students, who are 
welcome to participate, may contact the or- 
ganizers at 425-7954 or 636-3169. Ride On!

Cards Nudge Gents 
in Gold Dome Opener 



Page 13 



but 

mar 



Some of the names were changed 
the outcome wasn't, as the La- 
Universitv Cardinals defeated 
the Centenary Gents Wednesday 
night in overtime, 97-91. The 
game was very similar to last 
year's meeting betw.een the teams 
in Havnes Gym when the Cardinals 
won 101-99 in overtime. For 
first year coach Larry Little 
it was a disappointing debut since 
the Gents had apparently won the 
game on Melvin Russell's 2 free 
throws with 38 seconds left to 
give the Gents an 87-84 lead. 
However, the Cardinals tied it 
up on Willie Griggie's 3-point 
play with 23 seconds left. The 
Gents came back down court but 
Russell's 25-footer at the buzzer 
was off the rim. 

In the overtime period, the 
Cardinals dominated play as they 
outscored the Gents 10-4. Larry 
Davis made all four of the Gents' 
points , but the Cardinals had

the momentum led by Griggie and 
Lowell Hill, who was the only 
player for either team to play 
the entire game. Griggie's two 
free throws after time had run 
out completed the scoring. 

Midway through the first half, 
the Gents had opened up a 14 point 
lead, 37-23, but the Cardinals 
had cut it to 51-47 by halftone. 
The first half was marked by an 
unbelievable 19 fouls called 
against the Gents, who were 
playing mostly man-to-man defense. 
The Gents also hit 651 from the 
field before intermission. 

The second half was nip and 
tuck the whole way with the 
biggest lead being 5 points . 
The Gents ' big problem in the 
second half was their failure 
to penetrate the Lamar defense. 
Consequently, they hit less than 
331 of their field goal attempts. 

The big guns in the Lamar 
attack were Trennis Jones, Willie 
Griggie, Lowell Hill, and Alfred 
Nickson. Jones, a 6 '3" junior 
from DeRidder, La., killed the 
Gents all night and totalled 
30 points before he fouled out 
with 3:13 left. Griggie, who 
led the Cardinals with 10 re- 
bounds, scored 18 points, most 
of them coming in the last few 
crucial moments. Lowell Hill, 
the quick little guard, chipped 
in 14, most coming from outside 
the key in the last minutes. 
Nickson, the 6 '8" sophomore, ad-

For the Gents , Larry Davis 
was the standout scoring 26 
points on' his patented twisting, 
spinning one hand jumpers. Davis 
also led the Gents with 11 re- 
bounds. Lonnie LeFevre also dis- 
played a fine touch scoring 18 
points. Russell chipped in 13 
points while dishing out 9 as- 
sists, 8 in the first half. 



Overall the game was typical 
of opening night games with a let 
of turnovers and missed free 
throws. In these two areas the 
teams were about equal . 

In the final analysis, both 
teams had their chances to win, 
but the Cardinals pulled it to- 
gether at the right time for 
the victory for the second year 
in a row.

Gentlets Stomp Ponies 



The Centenary freshman team 
gave Gent fans hope for the fu- 
ture Wednesday night as they 
opened their season by defeating 
Panola Junior College, 90-79. 
The Gentlets put forth a good 
team effort in the victory. Rick 
Jacobs and Leon Johnson, both 
playing with painful injuries , 
were the leading scorers and re- 
bounders. Jacobs scored 28 points 
while picking off 16 caroms. 
Johnson bucketed 27 points and 
grabbed off 23 ricochets . 

After a close first half, the 
Gentlets expanded their 3-point 
half time lead to a 15-point lead 

Homecoming Tops 
Basketball Slate 

The highlight of this week- 
end's homecoming festivities 
will be tomorrow night's basket- 
ball games when the Gents host 
the East Texas Baptist Tigers 
from Marshall , Texas . The fresh- 
man team will also be playing ETBC, 
Coach Larry Little said earlier 
this week that he didn't know 
very much about ETBC except that 
they were young and inexperienced. 
The Tigers , coached by Ray Nye , 
will bring a squad which con- 
tains a number of freshmen. Con- 
sequently, their biggest prob- 
lem has been their inexperi- 
ence in their first few games. 

After Saturday's games, the 
Gents travel Monday night to 
Denton, Texas, to play the North 
Texas State Eagles. The same 
night the freshmen journey to 
Kilgore, Tex. , to play Kilgore 
Junior College. 

Next Saturday night, the 
Gents host the Arkansas State 
Indians. Arkansas State posted 
a 15-9 worksheet last year and' won 
the Southland Conference title. 
They will be led by 6'9" John 
Belcher who shot at a 63% clip 
from the floor last year. That 
same night the freshmen host 
Southern State. Closing out the 
Centenary schedule this semes- 
ter is the freshman team's date 
with Panola in Carthage on Dec. 
18. 



early in the second half. They 
maintained control the rest of 
the way although the Ponies did 
cut the lead to 8 with just under 
5 minutes left in the game. 

Greg Procell, Panola's star 
guard, who averaged over 30 points 
a game last year, was frustrated 
most of the evening. Hounded by 
Stan Welker most of the game, he 
scored 20 points, but connected 
on only 7 of 28 shots from the 
floor. 

Welker and Fred Niebrugge 
also hit double digits in scoring 
for the Gentlets. Welker scored 
Id, while Niebrugge hit for 13. 
Niebrugge also grabbed 13 re- 
bounds and led the team in as- 
sists with 5. Dale Kinkelaar 
and Bill Bergmann also saw plenty 
of action for the Gentlets. Free 
throw shooting was the Gentlets 
biggest weakness in the game as 
they hit on less than 401 of their 
attempts . 




Freshman Rick Jacobs (34) had an impressive Centenary debut 
Wednesday night, scoring 28 points 
and hauling down 16 rebounds. 



KWKH to Air Gents' Games 



For the first time in several 
years, Centenary basketball games 
will be broadcast this year. All 
games, both home and away, will 
be broadcast live by KWKH-AM, 
1130 on the dial. 

Irv Zeidman, who has been 
the Gents ' public address an- 
nouncer for the past several 
years, will be doing the play-by- 
play as he did when the games 
were broadcast in the early 1960 's 
Mr time will be 7:55 for all 
home games, with road games and 
tournament times to be announced 
at a later date. This coverage 
should increase interest in Cen- 
tenary basketball greatly in the 



Ark-La-Tex area.

with the Cotton Bowl from Dallas, 
Texas, Jan. 1 at 12:50 p. m.,

Centenary Runs Past LSU-S, 5-0 
To Keep Soccer Slate Clean 



Parvis Assi and Jose Cisneros 
scored all five goals Wednesday 
afternoon as Centenary defeated 
LSU-S, 5-0, in action in the 
Northwest Louisiana Soccer League. 
The Gents were in command the 
entire game as they increased 
their record to 4 wins and no 
losses to maintain their league 
lead. 

Assi scored two goals in the 
first half to give the Gents a 
2-0 half-time lead on the cold, 

Ex-Gent Announcer 
Dies in New York 

Bill Stern, who broadcasted 
Centenary football games in the 
1930 's when the Gents were a 
powerhouse, died Nov. 21, after 
suffering a heart attack at his 
home in Rye, N. Y. Stern, who 
went on to become a well-known 
national sports broadcaster, 
lost a leg in an automobile ac- 
cident in 1935 when he was at 
Centenary. He was especially 
well-known for his stories on 
inside aspects of sports person- 
alities. His big heyday was 
before the advent of television. 
Stem was 64.

gray afternoon. Cisneros kicked 
off second half scoring with a 
goal with about 10 minutes gone, 
which was shortly followed by 
Assi's third goal. The scoring 
was wrapped up with 30 seconds 
left when Cisneros scored on a 
pass from Assi. Besides these 
two players, Chris Carey and 
Rick Coe played very well. Other 
team members are Abdul O'Jeil, 
Ziad Richani, Riad Richani,Mike 
Smith, Allen McKemie, Hubert Van 
Hecke, Mike Moore, Eric Switzer, 
Tom Musselman, Moussa Sbaiti,

next action is slated for next

Coach Larry Little tries to make his point clear to the 
referee in Wednesday night's action. 



We're serious 
about selling Louisiana. 






All of us at the Louisiana Investor-Owned Electric 
Companies learned long ago that progress just isn't 
a miracle . . . you have to make it happen. That's why 
we're making efforts to bring new life to every area 
of our state's economy. 

Our specialists work every day in the fields of indus- 
trial and community development, economic advance- 
ment, tourist promotion and other progressive areas. 
This work often takes our people throughout the nation 
telling the Louisiana story to business executives, 
government officials and other decision-makers. 

The result? More jobs. An active economy. An im- 
proved environment. Additional recreational outlets. 
Steady trade. Innovative cultural activities. Enlarged 
educational facilities. And better-planned cities. 

We do more than provide dependable electric 
power. We're helping sell Louisiana. And that's a job 
where we all profit now and in the future.

Champagne 
from Wine 



Lighter wines can be converted into 
Champagne type by a very simple process. 
I did consider taking out a patent on this 
one. but realised that my knowledge should 
be shared among my less well endowed col- 
leagues. Rack the wine into champagne bot- 
tles and have the corks and wires handy. Now 
drop one "Alka Seltzer" tablet in each bot- 
tle and cork quickly. This sparkling wine 
can be consumed as soon as the tablet has 
dissolved, no sticking it down in a cave 
for two years, or growing long thumbnails for 
degorgement .

Editor's Note: To complete this 
guide to cheep and "free" (or, 
paid by taxes and donations) ser- 
vices available in the local area, 
Annabelle Eason spent weeks visi- 
ting numerous agencies and volun- 
teer groups to collect the facts. 

By Annabelle Eason 

While mulling over Shreveport's 
lack, or, at best, deficiency 
in almost everything, it is in- 
teresting to bring together some 
of the social services found 
here and see when and how they can 
be useful to the college student. 

Many of these services are fun- 
ded by the united Fund, 0. E. 0., 
or H. E. W. , and you must meet 
the 0. E. 0. poverty guidelines 
to qualify for some . The 1972 
guidelines specify a maximum in- 
come of $1900. 

-Pregnancy Problems - 

If you or someone you know is 
in the unfortunate position of 
dealing with an unwanted preg- 
nancy, Satori House has had a 
good bit of experience in hand- 
ling such cases, especially in 
regard to abortion referral. 

Satori workers deal mostly with 
a service in Dallas whicn pro- 
vides safe treatment at a rela- 
tively low fee. You will need a 
doctor's certificate affirming 
your pregnancy and an estimate 
of the length of your term so 
far. It is by far better not to 
let the pregnancy pass three 
months . 

An alternative to abortion is 
presented by the Volunteers of

TRIP 

TOMORROW 

In order to better understand 
the issues involved in the Atcha- 
falaya River Basin controversy, 
Ozark Society Bayou Chapter mem- 
bers will spend this weekend at 
a camp in the arep, vis ting the 
floodway that was created as an 
emergency water bypass after 
the disastrous Mississippi River 
flood of 1927. 

The controversy, involving tim- 
ber and oil interests, chain saws, 
soy beans, wetlands, and seasonal 
water flow, will be discussed over 
Joan Williams' special craw- 
fish etoufee. Anyone with warm 
clothes, rain gear, sleeping bag, 
and life preserver handy may con-

attention and placed in a faci- 
lity suitable to the birth defect. 

After the baby is bom, the 
mother usually has nothing more 
to do with the agency or the baby. 
All girls are accepted regardless, 
but they do get mostly white girls ; 
those who deliver in Confederate 
must be Louisiana residents. They 
can house 16 girls at one time and 
the cost is $75 a month for room 
and board, $100 entrance fee, and 
$350 doctors and hospital. In- 
surance or medicare may pay these 
expenses. If not, they may be 
paid on a monthly basis. If you 
have no money at all, they may be 
able to arrange something, so it 
is worth a try. 

If you are a minor, your 
parents will have to be in on this 
since you need the signature of a 
legal guardian to get into the 
hospital. At any rate, this 
place is super-private and rather 
limited in freedoms ; they have 
no facilities for visitors but 
the girls can go out once a week 
with an "approved person," usual- 
ly a parent , no boyfriends . The 
girls do all the housework and 
cooking and attend religious 
services in the house. 

These people seem to be rather 
moralistic- -sort of an "even 
a good girl can fall once, poor 
dears" attitude, but they are 
very nice.

He's Ray Teas ley, our new News Editor. 
With the addition of Ray to the higher ranks 
of the CONGLOMERATE staff, I'm excited about 
the possibilities for this semester. 

A probing reporter and excellent writer 
(witness his Sam Provenza article last semes- 
ter, which drew kudos and comments from local 
daily newspaper staffers) , Ray will coordinate 
the activities of the reporting staff. 

There has been one corresponding setback 
in the staff, however. Managing Editor Pam

To the Editor: 

The papers say SDS is dead. They wish! 
Despite the death notices more than 1000 



articles or publicity, please try to get it 
to us by Monday, to allow us to budget our 
time as well as we can. 

There will be a meeting this Tuesday, 
February 8, at the CONGLOMERATE office (up- 
stairs in the SUB) at 11 a.m. for all "re- 
porters, writers, artists, avatars, and beau- 
tiful girls," as our NewsEd optimistically 
put it, who want to work on the paper. We 
need help, so please come on up Tuesday.

OBSCENITY 

Nowadays it's probably impossible to de- 
termine what's considered "obscenity" in 
the varied strata of culture and society. 

It is the policy of the CONGLOMERATE to 
work (speaking in mechanical terms, actually, 
as- "work" is for us the process of applying 
words to newsprint) as a student newspaper. 

This means that, among other things, we 
will attempt to use that language which is 
most acceptable and effective with the student 
body in communicating our thoughts . 

We hope that adult and other non-student 
CONGLOMERATE readers will not feel offended 
when cultural mores clash. By presenting 
the campus as it is, the CONGLOMERATE serves 
the best interests of both student and "gra- 
duate" communities.

down and gave in.) Last year's SDS Conven- 
tion of over 1000 led to the launching of 
numerous struggles on campuses all across the 
country and several large national demon- 
strations to fight racist unemployment, 
welfare cuts, and the War in SE Asia. 

This year SDS has led struggles against 
pushers of racist ideology such as Herrn- 
stein at Harvard and Shockley at Stanford. 
In LA and Boston SDS is leading fights 
against administrations which boastfully 
push racist racist policies. In Chicago 
SDS has joined with welfare mothers and 
others to fight racist welfare cuts. In 
NY starting Monday, Jan. 24, SDS launched 
a city-wide campaign aimed at defeating 
Rockefeller's attempt to replace the free 
city university system with a tuition-char- 
ging state system. At Northeastern Univer- 
sity in Boston, SDS led a movement of work- 
ers and students which successfully pre- 
vented racist Attny. Gen. Mitchell from 
dedicating the new Police Science building. 
Many SDSers feel that a key focus of the 
Convention should be the launching of a 
national campaign on the scale of the anti- 
war movement to fight the upsurge of racism 
on campus, be it racist textbooks, professors, 
or administrators and their policies.

John Denver Show 
February 26 



Songster John Denver ('Take Me Home, Country 
Roads" and "Leaving On A Jet Plane") will 
bring his show to Centenary on Saturday, Feb. 
26 for an 8 p. m. appearance in the Golden 
Dome, sponsored by the Student Government As- 
sociation. Tim Cooley, coordinator for the 
project, announced that townspeople may pur- 
chase tickets in advance for $3.50 ($4 at the 
door) through Steve Holt's office (869-5266). 
The entrance fee for Centenary students is 
already paid through the $50-per-person 
student activities fee (subject to a $5 
rise if the board approves) . 

Denver made his debut as a solo artist 
with the RCA album Rhymes and Reasons , which 
contained a number of his own songs , inclu- 
ding "Leaving On A Jet Plane." Before that 
he was , for nearly four years , a member of 
the Mitchell Trio. 

His second album, 'Take Me To Tomorrow," 
contains six Denver originals along with 
material by Tom Paxton, Jacques Brel, James 
Taylor, and Biff Rose. 

Of his work as a performer, John has main- 
tained, "I don't want to entertain people, 
I want to touch them." 



KWKH Airs Dorm Question 

Richard Holwill of KWKH Radio has invited 
several Centenary students and faculty mem- 
bers to appear on Party Line Wednesday night 
February 9, at 7:30 to discuss the coed dorm' 
controversy and other campus -related prob- 
lems. Among those to be heard on the pro- 
gram will be WSGA President Jeanne Pmden 
and Campus Chaplain Robert Ed Taylor. 

KWKH is the station which broadcasts Cen- 
tenary basketball games throughout the season, 
and which interviewed a number of Centenary 
.students last semester for an abortion 
documentary. 

Interim Antics 
Net Vacations 

What started as another quiet interim 
eve ended with an ambulance, police, a seda- 
tive and finally a semester's rest for Cen- 
tenary student Jan Putnam. 

While smoking his pipe in a dorm room, 
Putnam apparently took a super-greedy draft 
causing him to inhale the flames of the burn- 
ing pipe filter instead of the expected sweet 
smoke. The resulting charred throat prompted 
a call for an ambulance which arrived, un- 
fortunately for him, with police. After 
inspecting the contents of the pipe, officers 
took Putnam downtown for questioning and in

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Sci-Fi Writer Harlan 
Ellison Here Tuesday 

Science fiction writer Harlan Ellison 
will speak at Centenary this Tuesday, 
Feb. 8, the first in this semester's Forums 
series , committee head Cherry Payne has 
announced. Ellison, termed the "most 
outrageous and exciting sci-fi writer," 
is an award winning short -story and TV- 
script writer, and has served as a columnist 
for the Los Angeles Free Press . Now living 
in L. A. , he has been active in television 
and movie scripting since 1955, and won a 
Hugo award for a Star Trek script. In fact, 
Ellison has won the coveted Hugo four times 
(a feat rivaled only by Robert Heinlein) and 
the prestigious Nebula award twice (his '66 
tale " 'Repent, Harlequin,' Said The Tick- 
Tock Man" won both) . 

Ellison's new book, Partners in Wonder , 
is the first book of collaborative science 
fiction stories every published. Other sci- 
fi masters, including A. E. Van Vogt, The- 
odore Sturgeon, and Roger Zelazny work with 
Ellison to present a tragic love story be- 
tween a mortal man and the woman he has made 
immortal, a terrifying battle between a 
lone man and a starship that is his home-- 
and master--, and a tale of the mad sor- 
cerer who will determine a world's survi- 
val. 

Ellison will speak at 8 p. m., Tuesday, 
Feb. 8, in the Hurley Music Building Audi- 
torium. 

Poor Man's 



Supper 



Christian Service also administers the 
Brook Street School breakfast program as 
well as monthly picnics for children of 
the Brook Stree* - ~ z. 

The full-time coordinator of the Chris- 
tian Serive Program is Sister Margaret 
McCaffrey. A native of Alabama, in 1951 
Sister Margaret entered the Order of the 
Blessed Trinity, a missionary society in 
Philadelphia. Since that time she has 
worked in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, 
Colorado, and Alexandria, La. Sister Mar- 
garet lives with the people she serves in 
order to better identify and be identified 
with them. 

Sister Margaret emphasizes that the 
"Poor Man's Supper" is the main source of 
income for her program which expends ap- 
proximately $2,000.00 a month. One dollar, 
and an evening of your time, can help Sister 
Margaret continue her work. See Dick Welch 
(865-0703), Netta Hares (869-5369), Dr. 
Morgan or Chaplain Robert Ed Taylor for 
tickets. 

The Student 
Senate Report 

by Tom Guerin 

The Senate's first meeting of the 1972 
spring semester ocurred in the Centenary 
room at 5:30, Wed., Feb. 2. Rick Clark 
and Chris Blanchard have classes scheduled 
at that time and were excused from the 
meeting. Barry Fulton commented later that 
he could not think of another time in which 
to schedule meetings and asked the Senators 
to consider alternatives to remedy the situ- 
ation. Minutes from the last meeting verfe 
quickly read and approved. Announcements for 
the upcoming week included Forums, Tuesday, 
Feb. 8 and that the IFC will sponsor a dance 
in Haynes Gym Saturday the 5th at 8:00. 
There will be an election Monday, Feb. 7, to 
fill the vacated second vice presidency. It 
will be a write-in election. Treasurer John 
Taylor confirmed that John Denver will give 
a concert in the new gym on the evening of 
Feb. 26. Students will be admitted on their 
I. D. cards while tickets will be sold at 
$3.50 in advance and $4.00 at the door. He 
then suggested and received the. support of 
the Senate that overtures be made to the 
high schools along the terms that they 
would buy blocks of tickets at $3.25 and 
resell them at $3.50, keeping the profit. 

Discussion concerning the Honor Court 
constitution was postponed until next meet- 
ing when representatives of that body should 
be present. 

Paul Heffington then presented the Execu- 
tive Council proposal entitled the "Con- 
stitution of the Associated Student Body 
of Centenary College." This particular 
wording is designed to divorce any unfa

At 6:30 p. m. on Feb. 17, at the 
Civic Center, students will have a chance 
to do something about poverty in Shreve- 
port. That's the date of the second annual 
"Poor Man's Supper." 

For $1.00 ($2.00 for non-student adults) 
students who attend will receive a bowl of 
soup, a piece of bread, and a cup of coffee. 
Not much, but that's the point. 

Entertainment will come from Shreveport 
area youth, using a theme of poverty and 
brotherhood. It's an evening designed to 
jog the conscience of the community, to 
make us more aware of poverty in Shreve- 
port. 

The proceeds from the supper are to go 
to the Christian Service Program, which 
began in Jan., 1970, the brainchild of 
Father Clayton of St. Joseph's Catholic 
Church. St. Joseph's, along with other 
local churches, continues to fund the pro- 
gram, but a major source of funds for the 
program is the annual supper. 

The Christian Service Program is in- 
volved in direct aid to the city's poor. 
It takes up where existing agencies such 
as the welfare department leave off. Direct 
cash payments are made to cover emergencies 
such as a family of eleven living in a 
garage, medicine for a terminal cancer 
patient's pain, and medicine for a child 
whose mother's income is $95.00 a month.

vorable association with the past student 
governing bodies. The two articles pre- 
sented concerned the structure of the go- 
verning body and the structure of the com- 
mittee system. Heffington explained that 
the idea is to keep the constitution short 
but clear. The article concerning the ju- 
dicial branch of the government has not 
been written yet pending a combined meeting 
of the five groups on campus that have ju- 
dicial power. A meeting was held Thurs- 
day, Feb. 3, to discuss the wording of the 
article concerning the process of amending 
the document and the writing and approval 
of by-laws for the government. 

Further action was postponed pending the 
results of the judicial and by-laws meetings, 
I he Senate meeting was adjourned at 6:15 
p. m. 



Don't Pull That Pin 



On Sunday afternoon, Jan. 23, just a few 
days before the> end of interim, two live 
hand grenades were found in the shrubbery 
in Crumley Gardlns (right by the front side- 
walk where the |rater flows out, for you ammo 
hunters) by two local youngsters -at -pi ay. 
Recognizing the weapons (actually, M-67 
Army Fragmentation Hand Grenades) as pos- 
sibly dangerous items, one of the kids 
went to the SUB and informed freshman Mike 
Smith of the find. 

Smith took one look, said Don't Touch, and 
called the police, the fire department, and 
his father, James M. Smith, campus security 
officer ("Smitty" to the cognoscenti) . 

Realizing that newsmen had already been 
notified by police reports, the senior 
Smith called President Allen to suggest that 
he tune in the six o'clock news. Sure 'nuff, 
the story made that broadcast. 

According to the Shreveport Times , the 
grenades were turned over to the 45th 
Disposal Squad from Fort Polk. The gren- 
ades, attached to a mouldy and cobweb - 
covered green belt, were issued in July. 
1971. 

Anyone missing grenades or other ammu- 
nition from his dresser or closet should 
contact the CONGLOMERATE immediately. 

Volunteer Judges 

Assignment cards for dorm students will 
be sent out in campus mail next week, to 
help recruit volunteer judges for the next 
Centenary Debate Tournament, to be held 
March 10 and 11. The tourney, which attracts 
teams from all parts of Louisiana and sur- 
rounding states, is a yearly project of the

INTERIM 
REPORT 

Bible Through Drama 

By Jeff Hendricks 
For the nine persons who were enrolled 
in the course Bible Through Drama, this 
past Interim proved to be a unique syn- 
thesis of historical fact and personal cre- 
ativity. Led by Dr. Webb Pomeroy and Mr. 
Kip Holloway, the class met weekdays from 
10:00 to 12:30 in the Fireside Room of the 
Smith Building. The use of a seminar format 
provided excellent discussions ranging from 
the effect of drama on the contemporary church 
to the meaning of a personal religion. Al- 
though the class time was taken up with dis- 
cussion, the reading of plays such as J. B. 
by Archibald MacLeish, and Gideon by Paddy 
Chayefsky was encouraged for outside read- 
ing. Instead of a term paper or a final, 
the individual projects were to take a tl 
from a biblical story (the Prodigal Son, 
David and Bathsheba) , and to write a play- 
let in a contemporary setting. In order 
to truly grasp the relationship and com-

wwn? 

Editor's Note: The following is re- 
printed from the CONGLOMERATE , Jan. 18, 1935. 
Edgar Z. Friedenberg , it should be noted, 
was a thirteen year-old prodigy attending 
Centenary for his first formal schooling 
at the time of this interview. 

What, in your opinion, is the value of 
armament in the prevention of war? Do you 
think that the most expedient and practical 
method of bringing about peace is (so-called) 
preparedness? 

William Glassell (junior): I don't 
think armament is a practical method of 
bringing about peace. 

Browning Steen (senior) : Disarmament 
will not be successful unless it is carried 
out by all nations. Yet this idea of each 
nation trying to outdo the other in prepared- 
ness will not bring about peace. 

Steven Bradley (senior) : The fact that 
we were in a state of unpreparedness in 
1914 did not keep us out of war, and it is, 
therefore, not reasonable to think that 
unpreparedness will keep us out of war in 
the future. I think we should maintain 
an arm>' and navy adequate to defend our 
country against any invaders. We cannot 
assure ourselves of peace by disarming 
at a time when all of the major powers 
of the world are increasing their military 
forces . 

Roy Bennett (senior) : I think that 
the so-called idea of preparedness preven- 
ting war is very fallacious. It didn't serve 
to prevent the World War. It gives rise 
to a military class in tnis country. This 
class is usually ready and, willing to fight. 

Edgar Friedenberg (Freshman) : I think 
that preparedness is tne only method of 
war prevention for a relatively rich nation 
until all disarm together- -not eminent. 

Harriotte Smith (junior): I don't 
think unnecessary preparedness will bring 
about peace. I think a country should be 
prepared only to a certain degree, but if 
war should occur, be in condition to get 
prepared quickly. 

Paul Entriken (sophomore) : The idea 
of bringing about peace by military pre- 
paredness is wrong. As long as nations 
are armed to the teeth there will be fre- 
quent wars. However, no nation can disarm 
alone. As President Roosevelt said, that 
would be national suicide. These advoca- 
tors of preparedness are either army officers 
or hypocrites . 

Ruth Preston (freshman): I think a 
country should be prepared to such an ex- 
tent that if worst comes to worst and we 
have to fight, we will be ready. 

Hall Triche (senior): I do not think 
that there can be any permanent world peace 
while nations maintain large armaments, but 
I believe it would be disastrous for any 
one nation or group of nations to disarm. 

Kenneth Kellam (junior): 1 think if 
the money spent for preparedness was spent 
in an educational campaign for American 
youth; and, friendships instead of battle- 
ships, were built, we would have a greater 
deterrent to war.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Page Five 



by Dr. Wayne Hanson 

Editor's Note: In his new CONGLOMERATE 
column series, Dr. Hanson will report and 
comment on all areas of ecological action. 

Concern about the ecological problems 
besetting our planet is not new, no matter 
how contemporary the present flurry of in- 
formation appears. Conservation of our 
natural resources was widely recongized 
at the turn of the century. Active pro- 
grams in conservation education were im- 
plemented in the schools in the 1930 's. 
Many of the conservation education programs 
carried out today were developed decades 
ago to inform an uneducated public. 

Now we are again claiming that the pub- 
lic is ill-informed and undereducated, 
despite nearly forty years of education 
geared toward a better understanding of 
ecology and the environment. What went 
wrong with the programs in existence over 
the years? Perhaps they were not broad 
enough in content or wide enough in scope. 
It is certainly true that our increased 
technological activity and our greater un- 
derstanding of the complete interdependence 
of all organisms, including man, have changed 
the scope of ecology. Ecological problems 
are no longer seen as the private conern of 
one segment of science. The Environmental 
Education Act passed in October 1970 de- 
fines environmental education as " . . . the 
educational processes dealing with man's 
relationship with his natural and man-made 
surroundings, and includes the relation 
of population, pollution, resource alloca- 
tion and depletion, conservation, trans- 
portation, technology, and urban and rural 
planning to the total human environment." 

The demands of the current world situa- 
tion are such that neither the non-scientist 



nor the scientist, whatever his stature or 
field of specialization, can ignore his 
fellow man. And it is probably fair to 
say that today every man is , to some extent , 
a technologist if not a true scientist. 
Our ecological problems have been created 
through the careless use of scientific and 
technological advances. Indeed, the very 
existence of life, and in particular, hu- 
man life, as we now know it is threatened 
by scientifically created weapons, waste, 
and consumption. If we stipulate that this 
bent toward self-destruction is not purpose- 
ful, then how can we account for man's

'Bio-Survival Fest In Sweden 



.Washington, D. C.--The National Wildlife 
Federation is planning to sponsor a three- 
day symposium on "Uniting Nations for Bio- 
Survival" in Stockholm, Sweden, June 10-12, 
1972, according to Thomas L. Kimball, Execu- 
tive Director. 

This Symposium will be presented during 
the governmental United Nations Conference 
on the Human Environment scheduled for Stock- 
holm, June 5-16, 1972. Eighteen national 
and world authorities on the environment 
and ecosystem relating to renewable natural 
resources have accepted invitations to be 
panel participants for the Symposium. 

The National Wildlife Federation feels 
strongly that, while major world environ- 
mental issues will be explored, no definite 
conclusions or recommendations will emerge 
from the plenar) n because of strong 
parochial political influences inherent in 
the governmental organizational structure 
of the United Nations. 



"The pollution abatement of our land, 
sea, and air is so imperative that con- 
cerned citizenry, free from the rigidity 
of governmental positions, must be heard 
on these major environmental contamination 
problems," Kimball declared. "We envision 
a people-to-people symposium with recita- 
tion of national environmental problems and 
their effect on the world biosphere, with 
the objective of exploring unanimity of 
opinion as to action programs and policies 
to clean up the world environment." 

Members of the Follow-Up Committee of the 
International Youtli Conference group will 
be invited to attend the three day sympo- 
sium. 

The program itself Ls in process of being 
finalized. Copies may be obtained from the 
National Wildlife Federation headquarters,

blind- like behavior in the use of scientific 
and technologic knowledge? 

Man's current problems may be thought 
to stem largely from estrangement. That is 
to say, humans possess the curious ability 
to act as if other humans were not also hu- 
man; or to act as if they did not know better 
when it is obvious that they do. It is this 
ability which allows one human to harm an- 
other without remorse because he simply does 
not see the kinship between himself and the 
other human. This same ability allows a 
person to accumulate knowledge and then act 
as if he did not possess it because he does 
not feel a relationship between the knowledge 
he possesses and his situation. It is 
as if the person were able to place knowledge, 
understanding, and awareness in special 
compartments reserved for use only under 
very restricted circumstances for which 
they have the greatest utility. 

This condition, probably uniquely hu- 
man, may be fostered by the need to defend 
oneself against either psychological or 
physical attacks in which the defense is 
made easier if one can assume that the as- 
sailant is a stranger who need not be given 
either concern or credibility-. It may. al- 
so be the result of a mind which can ac- 
cumulate data much faster than it can see 
the relationships between these data. 
This results in the tragic condition of 
modern man who is, on the one hand, en- 
gulfed with know ledge he only vaguely un- 
derstands and which he is hard pressed 
to relate to his personal life, and who is, 
on the other hand, tightly encased in an 
impenetrable cocoon of defenses, worries, 
and preoccupations. This cocoon then 
serves as a protection against the real 
and the imaged assaults of the world, but 
it also serves to keep a person from being 
in tune with himself and seeing the rela- 
tionship between himself, others , and hi 
environment. 

In order for a person to learn, he must 
overcome the restricting influence of this 
cocoon and expand his awareness and ex- 
perience while simultaneously developing an 
understanding of these experiences. The 
task of education, then, is to help people 
bring meaning and understanding into their 

S and to determine the nature of their 
relationship to manVind. This view of edu- 
cation is in contras to "training" which 
is seen as the development of skill and 
knowledge in a specific area for a specific 
purpose. Education in this context is a 
much broader and difficult task, the out- 
comes of which are much less certain and 
specific than those of a training program. 

The purpose of the Environmental 
Education Act was to stimulate an interest 
in creating new programs that would edu- 
cate rather than simply train, and would 
treat ecology as a broad and dynamic 
science. Any such development, however, 
takes time, and we are fast learning that 
time is a precious common

THE CONGLOMERATE 



February 4, 1972 



The Treen Team Gets 
a Losers Touch 

By Wesley Garvin 

When the "Treen Machine" came to a halt 
Tuesday night, many Shreveport residents 
realized that there really were two candi- 
dates in the Governor's race and that the 
"other one"- -Cong. Edwin Edwards --had 
walked off with the main prize. 

It is not surprising, given the tre- 
mendous support and exposure Dave Treen 
received in Shreveport, that many Caddo 
Parish "Democrats" felt as if there was 
only a one-man race. What is suprising 
is that apparently many of them believed 
that the rest of the state shared their 
attitude of "if you won't play by rules, 
I'll take my ball and go home." 

This seems also to be what Mr. Treen 
was counting on. His formula for victory 
apparently included four major points: 
1- increase turnout in the Johnston areas; 
2-decrease turnout in the South where Ed- 
wards was strong; 3 -hold the Johnston vote 
almost entirely for himself; and 4-add 
the 40,000 Republicans. 

He almost pulled it off. Three of the 
four factors delivered; only one did not. 
Turnout in the North equalled the Second 
Primary turnout. In the Fourth Congres- 
sional District more people voted Feb. 1 
than in December, which is unheard of in 
Louisiana. Turnout in the Edwards strong- 
holds did decline somewhat, but nowhere 
near as much as had been hoped. Obviously 
a good many Republicans delivered a sig- 
nificant Treen vote. What was missing was 
the Johnston vote. 

Bennett Johnston's near-miss second 
primary campaign was centered around a 
base of strength in the North combined with 
a heavy urban vote and a split in the Great- 
er New Orleans area. Treen backers felt 
that they could hold the significant portion 
of these votes . What they did not count on 
was the fact that many Johnston supporters 
did not consider his defeat to be a personal 
insult, and were thus willing to start fresh 
in the General Election. 

This fresh start resulted in a serious 
defection in the presumed Johns ton -to -Treen 
axis, thereby causing Edwards to be elected 
by about 175,000 votes. 

The defection can be seen in all three 
areas of concern. In the North Treen did 
best, but could not hold all of the rural 
Johnston vote. In Madison Parish, on the 
Mississippi, Johnston received his largest 
percentage, 75.21, yet in the general elec- 
tion 62% returned to the Edwards column. 
Other northern Parishes did not show such 
a significant change, but most did' record 
an increase in the Edwards vote of about 
10*. 

In the urban areas, Treen 's vote was 
significantly less than expected. John- 
ston carried six of the eight large parishes 
in the state, Treen managed only three (Cad- 
do, E. Baton Rouge, and Rapide- 

Finally, in the New Orleans area, Ed- 
wards ran significantly ahead of his second 
primary pace. He lost this area to John- 
ston in December by some 4,000 votes, but 
carried it Tuesday by over 30,000. Most 
discouraging in this area was Treen 's 
showing in his home Parish of Jefferson, 
where incomplete returns show Edwards with 
a slight lead. 

Philosophically, Tuesday's election 
seems to show that Louis ianians do desire 
a change, but not too much. It's one thing 
to go along with a movement to "throw the 
rascals out," which seems to have been the 
dominant theme in the first primary. It is 
something quite different to throw the house 
out with the rascals and start building from 
scratch, thus most Louis ianians were not 
willing to go all the way to the "real 
change" urged by the Republicans. 

As for the Republican Party in the stats, 
first impressions are that there will be 
no significant change. 

Shreveport justified their vote for Treen 
jn the basis of "building a two-part 
tern," but few if any of these are willing 
to back up their token vote with the real 
act of changing their party registration. 

The one real, tangible result of Treen's 
race was the election of a handful of Re- 
publicans to the State Legislature, on his 
coattails. This can be seen quite clearly 



,in the two Shreveport districts which elec- 
ted Republicans. In the Southside 5th 
District, B. F. O'Neal rode Treen's 73% 
vote in the district to a 551 victory over 
Gard Wayt, while in the Highlands and North 
Highlands 6th District (which includes Cen- 
tenary) Art Sour edged out veteran Rep- 
resentative Frank Fulco by 700 votes while 
Treen was carrying the district by over 
4,000. 

For the record, Edwards is the first 
South Louisiana Governor in 28 years, and 
the first Catholic this century. Treen's 
probably total of 43% will be the highest 
for a Republican this century, beating 
Charlton Lyons' 38% in 1964. Caddo Parish 
is now represented in the Legislature by 
3 1/2 white Democrats (the half is Joe 
Cooper, whose district is southern Caddo 
plus DeSoto) , 1 black--the first in Caddo 
Parish history, and two Republicans. Cooper 
is the only returnee to the Legislature. 

All three State Senators are Democrats, 
one hold-over (Jackson Davis) , one promo- 
tion from the House (Don Williamson), and 
one new face (C . Kay Carter) . 



X> •&£¥£' 



Beginning in this issue with an excerpt 
from a Ted Kennedy speech, the CONGLOMERATE 
initiates a regular column for political 
commentary and analysis . 

It is now more than ten years since 
John Kennedy told us to ask not what our 
country could do for us , but what we could 
do for our country. That was a phrase and 
a feeling that fired the imagination of an 
entire generation of Americans, and of 
people all around the world. To all our 
citizens --rich and poor, North and South, 
business and labor- -it brought a new aware- 
ness of the purpose of America. It brought 
new respect for our basic civil liberties. 
It brought new compassion to the strong. 
It brought new hope to all the weak- -to 
the poor and the black, the Indian and the 
Chicano, the small farmer in our rural 
counties . 

I believe that government can still 
inspire the people. That is what we need 
once more. Let us enlist again the energies 
and talents of our citizens, especially our 
young, in the great public enterprises of 
the American nation. The idealism we had 
before may be just a spark today, but it is , 
still there, waiting for the call that can 
fan it back to life. 

Perhaps ... we can pull it all to- 
gether and appreciate our need by considering 
the name Charles Thompson. Charles Thomp- 
son recently pleaded guilty in New York to 
manslaughter in the first degree. He shot 
a cab-driver he was trying to rob when the 
man put up an unexpected fight. 

Before sentencing, the judge received a 
probation report. Charles Thompson, it seems, 
has only one leg. He lost the other at Khe 
Sanh. He also has a heroin addiction that 
he acquired at an army hosptial in Japan. 
He returned to the United States, as have 
so many of our veterans, without adequate 
education or job training, crippled and 
addicted, without any prospect or hope of 
employment. His disability pay was inade- 
quate to support his habit. So he did the 
only thing he was trained to do- -he used 
a gun. 

The judge was compassionate. He could 
not just release this dangerous man. He had 
to think of the next cabdriver. So he called 
agency after agency, state and federal and 
local and private, trying to find any place 
or person who would accept responsibility 
for treating Charles Thompson under appro-

priate safeguards. There was none. Mo 
one would take him in. And so, two days 
before Thanksgiving of 1971, Charles Thomp- 
son was sentenced to serve up to 25 years 
in Attica State Prison. 

That story sums up something of what 
we have done to the bright promise of 
the American nation. It measures our 
misguided policies of the recent past, 
and their survival into the present. It 
measures the failures of our society, the 
imperfections of our justice, the extent 
of our insensitivity to the suffering of 
our fellow citizens. And most of all, it 
illuminates our helplessness, our seeming 
inability to do what we know is right, what 
we know we have the capacity to accomplish. 

That is the flagging spirit we can and 
must revive, for ourselves and for the 
future of our children. For, in the last 
analysis, to live peacefully and decently 
as a nation, we need a certain kind of moral 
order, a certain kind of social and poli- 
tical order, an order based on things like 
hope and work and faith and love, the age- 
old virtues that built America in the past. 
That is the challenge of leadership we 
face today, and that is what 1972 is all 
about. ---Senator Edward Kennedy in an 
address, Washington, D.C., January 17, 
1972. 

A Republican Look 

At The 
State Of The Union 

By Roger Showley/WCNS 

"An eloquent, statesmanlike and moving 
appeal," Massachusetts Senator Edward Brooke 
called' it. "Clearly a challenge to the Con- 
gress and to the country," said Senator 
Howard Baker from Tennessee. "A basical- 
ly sound approach to today's problems. "-- 
Texas Senator John Tower. 

All three Republicans were referring to 
President Nixon's third State of the Union 
Address. What was in the 4,000 word speech 
before Congress for college students? 

"I have found that college students res- 
pond to practically the same issues as 
their parents and others," Senator Tower 
said. "The President's message contains a 
sound set of constructive programs that 
respond to and act on the social and en- 
vironmental problems facing us today." 

Tower also emphasized that the President's 
program can be accepted on a bi-partisan 
basis. "He has thrown down the challenge 
to attack these problems. It is now up to 
Congress to act on these proposals which have 
been pending for a year or more." 

The President gave his annual report a new 
dimension in a 15,000 word written message 
of past achievements and plans for 1972- - 
primarily an amplification of his intentions 
in domestic fields. 

The President's judgment on two issues 
important to students illustrate the scope 
of this written report. (A "State of the 
World" message comes out Feb. 8.) 

Envi ronment : The President pointed out to 
Congress the achievements during his Adminis- 
tration so far: establishment of the En- 

■nmental Protection Agency, new air 
quality standards, and a" beefed up Refuse 
Act to stop water pollution- -with more than 
160 civil and 320 criminal actions 
filed in 1971 . 

"The most striking fact about environ- 
mental legislation in the early 1970 's," 
he said, "is how much has been proposed and 
how little has been enacted .... The 
need for action in these areas is urgent. 
The forces which threaten our environment 

Lt while we procrastinate." He 
pledged to in new proposals in his 
environment message, due the first week in 
February, and more than triple the 1973 
environment budget over 1969 's level. 

Education : President Nixon recalled hi 
two-year old proposals related to higher 
education: "student assistance measu 
to ensure that no qualified person would 

arred from college by a lack of money, 
a National Institute of Education to bring 
new energy and new direction to education ,] 
research, and a National Foundation for 
Higher Education to encourage innovation 
in learning beyond high school. These 
initiatives are still awaiting final ac- 
tion by the Congress. They deserve prompt 
approval." r

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Freebees 



continued from page one 
status is necessary, and all their ser- 
vices are free, even to students whose 
parents support them, or those who sup- 
port themselves but earn only "a few hun- 
dred dollars a month." If you are a mi- 
nor, due to a rather unfortunate law, you 
will need parental consent; however, if 
you have been pregnant previously or have 
had an abortion you do not need parental 
consent regardless of your age. 

The initial session is at Confederate 
where you must go through films and a lec- 
ture on birth control methods , followed by 
a medical examination by one of the Con- 
federate residents in gynecology and ob- 
stetrics. This includes a breast exami- 
nation, urine and blood tests, a pelvic 
examination and a pap test. Call 865-3557 
to find out when you can attend one of these 
sessions. If any medical problems arise 
at the time of the initial examination or at 
any subsequent check-up, arrangements will 
be made to take care of them. 

After the initial session, you will re- 
ceive birth control pills every month if 
you desire them and you will have a peri- 
odic check-up every few months afterwards 
for as long as you like. Again, all these 
services are free. These people have a fine 
attitude and "would very much like to help 
more white people and especially students." 
Also, if you are out of town and need : 
more pills, you can pick them up at any 
Family Planning Clinic in Louisiana. 

If you prefer a private doctor, call 
Satori House, and they can put you in 
touch with a good local doctor. 
-Other Medical Attention- 
If you suspect that you may have V. D. 
or just want to make sure, go to the 
Caddo Health Unit of U. S. Public Health 
on King's Hwy, from 8:00 to 10:30 or 
12:30 to 4:30 any day, Monday through 
Friday, for an examination. If the exami- 
nation shows that you do have some form 
of V. D. , you can get free, private atten- 
tion without parental consent on Tuesdays 
and Fridays from 11:30 to 2:00. (There is 
a ginorreha epidemic all over the U. S.) 
They also offer skin tests and X-rays 
for tuberculosis, and profalactic treat- 
ment for forms of T. B. other than p'T- 
monary tuberculosis. If you have chil- 
dren, they can receive just about every 
form of preventive immunization there, also 
free --everyone qualifies for all their 
services. 

If you need medical attention because of 
a drug problem, Shire House can help, as 
they have a nurse on duty at all times. 
They also offer counselling and the prover- 
bial "someone to talk to" as do Open Ear 
and Satori House. It is difficult to as- 
sess the effectiveness and/or adequacy of 
these agencies; so many times they are 
not able, because of their facilities, 
perhaps, to help those who really need 
long-term attention or who have a serious 
problem. However, these agencies can be

such as the type given here and other facets 
of social aid. As above mentioned, they 
can many times put you in contact with a 
good doctor in whatever field your problem 
is centered. 

-Draft Counsel ing- 
Due to a recent draft counselling semi- 
nar held at Satori House and attended by 
counsellors from Satori House and some 
people from the Unitarian Church, you 
can perhaps receive some information by 
calling Satori if you are in that par- 
ticular predicament. Two good books 
full of information on the draft are there 
as a result of the seminar. 
-Legal Aid- 
If you ever need a bondsman, call Satori 
House. But if you need legal services, 
you are more or less out of luck. Legal 
aid handles only non-criminal and non-fee 
generating cases or landlord cases, and 
yovntfost meet the 0. E. 0. poverty guide- 
lines to qualify. However, if you have 
no parents or are in the throes of paren- 
tal neglect, they can emancipate you. 

Neighborhood Law came into existence 
because there was a need for legal aid 
in criminal cases. However, they only 
handle misdemeanors --no felonies or fee- 
generating cases. Here also you must meet 
the 0. E. 0. poverty guidelines and they, 
similar to Legal Aid, handle mostly local 
poverty cases. 

If your legal problem involves a possible 
violation of civil rights and/or liberties 
or if you want to test the constitutional 
validity of a law which you feel is unfair, 
it is sometimes possible to receive free 
or inexpensive legal counsel through the 
American Civil Liberties Union. They can 
be contacted through Dr. L. C. Pendleton, 
president of the local chapter. 

-Vocational Rehabilitation- 
If you have a structural defect, either 
physical or mental, try Vocational Rehabili- 
tation. They will pay your fees and tuit- 
tion and if your parents or you qualify for 
Financial Aid they will also' pay your room 
and board while you are in school. They 
even pay these expenses if you are going 
to school out of state. 

-Food Stamps - 
Due to new regulations starting this year 
only related members of a household qualify' 
for food stamps if they are under sixty. If 
you do live in a related household of, for 
example, four people, the maximum combined 
available income of the household must not 
exceed $360 a month. 

-Housing Loans - 
Married couples might look into the 235 
housing program, sponsored by the FHS. This 
is a loan program for buying a house and 
the requirements are rather stringent. But 
if you do qualify, it's a pretty good deal. 
There is also a 235 rental program under- 
construction. 

There do seem to be a few good programs 
available to the college student in Shreve- 
port, but they are rather lopsided, having 
mostly to do with problems and services that 
only women could take advantage of. If 
college students want services, for example 
in the legal field, that are tailored to 
meet their needs, it looks like they will 
have to start them themselves. 

Note: Anyone wishing to add information 
to this list can do so by calling the 
CONGLOMERATE office- -Phone 5269. 

Yoncopin Beauties 

Nominations for Yoncopin beauties 
will be accepted until noon Wednesday, 
Feb . 9 in the Student Union building 
Nominations should be placed in the 
ballot box located in the SUB. 

Movie Discussions 

Alpha Chi, National College Honor Scholar- 
ship Society, is sponsoring a number of 
group discussions on the current series 
of SUB movies. The first of these dealing 
with "Bonnie and Clyde," will meet on Sun- 
day, Feb. 6, at 3:00 p. ra_ in the home of 
a faculty member who will moderate- -but 
not dominate --the discussion. 

The object of these sessions is simply 
to generate some good conversation in an 
easy, informal atmosphere. Ideally, par- 
ticipants will have viewed the movie at 
the SUB (8:00 p. m., Friday, Feb. 4 in 
the case of "Bonnie and Clyde") so that 
topics will be fresh in their mind.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



February 4, 1972 




by John Wafer 

The festival goer usually falls into 
one of three categories; the casual atten- 
der, the serious festival fan, and the fes- 
tival nut. Most Americans fall into the first 
group, those who restrict their festival - 
going activities to the immediate area, 
afraid that any celebration taking place 
more than one or two hundred miles away will 
probably not be worth the trouble. The next 
higher group, the serious fan, will make 
periodic trips outside the state to at- 
tend a festival celebrating something of 
particular interest, or one known to at- 
tract great numbers of the opposite sex, 
or one in which the epicurean delights 
are featured. 

The third group, however, while by far 
the smallest, makes up the nucleus of any 
festival crowd. They're the ones who ar- 
rive seven days in advance, claiming the 
best camping spots and getting the feel 
of the area in which the festivities are 
to occur so that when the thing begins , 
there will be no time lost to those pedes- 
trian activities which plague the late- 
comers. You can usually spot the members of 
this select clique; they pay no attention 
to the prevailing dress styles (or 'codes,' 
if you will) but are attired in the most 
practical clothes, they know where the best 
and cheapest wineshops are and they will 
amaze you with their seemingly clairvoyant 
knack of being at the right place at the 
right time. They are at the same time in- 
sufferable and essential , they annoy you 
with their knowledge of whatever is being 
celebrated, but they prove invaluable guides 
in the pursuit of the pleasures of festival- 
going. It is as if all festivals are made 
for them and they are made for all fes- 
tivals. Watch them, for they hold the key 
to innumerable delights; and go where they 
go, for it is there that you will find the 
heart of any celebration, and that is what 
it is all about. They know; they are the 
chosen ones. 

Well, this won't make you a dyed in the 
wool festival nut, but at least you can 
tell from where the next one's coming- 
With a tip of the hat to Francis Shemanski 
of Saturday Review (who compiled a list of 
noteworthy functions for the year ahead 
from which most of the following informa- 
tion was taken, with the exception of the 
Ixiuisiana festivals) here is a list of what 
you can do this spring: January 6th marked 
the beginning of the carnival season in New 
Orleans . . . you missed it , but despair not , 
for it goes on until midnight, Feb. 15, and 

ou can't make it down to New Orleans 
for a few moments 'twixt now and then, it's 
your own fault. Before you go bouncing off 
to beautiful downtown N. 0. for a bout of 
bacchanalian revelries, however, you might 
be well advised to take note of a possible 
source of irritation at Mardi Gras this 



year. Seems that the New Orleans police 
have become a little over- enthusiastic in 
their efforts to combat crime in the Cres- 
cent City, and according to an article in 
the Jan. 28 issue of the Vieux Carre Courier, 
have adopted that peculiarly southern , 
tradition of temporarily "suspending" some 
suspects civil rights. The ACLU has 
launched a volley or two of protests , which 
is nice, but doesn't really help too much 
while one is being bashed on the head with 
a billy club. Be warned. Also on the subject 
of Mardi Gras , there is help available to 
those weary ones who find themselves with- 
out bed, board or other necessities of life 
in the form of the Mardi Gras Coalition. 
Should you find yourself in that unhappy 
state, you can get in touch with them at 
523-3598. Their headquarters will be lo- 
cated at the St. Marks Community Center on 
the comer of North Ramparts and Governor 
Nicholls St. Also in operation to ward 
off possible disaster at Mardi Gras will 
be the HEAD Clinic, which is located at 
1127 Decatur, phone number 524-9314. 
Make sure that you really need help before 
you decide to ask them for it, though, as 
they are going to have their hands quite 
full giving assistance where it is truly 
needed, and they don't need any more of your 
troubles than is absolutely necessary. 
February does not begin and end with 
Mardi Gras, however, as there are festivals 
of various shapes and sizes throughout the 
country. Taken in some semblance of chrono- 
logical order, we have the Snow Festival 
at St . Agathe des Monts , Quebec , which lasts 
through Feb. 28th, the Winter Carnival 
in Quebec City through Feb. 15 and the 
Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage, Alaska. Closer 
to home, but not by much, you can catch the 
Azalea and Camelia Show in Chicago between 
Feb. 13th and March 7th, or maybe the West- 
minister Kennel Club Show in New York City 
(veeery pos). Feb. 14th marks the Chinese 
New Year Celebrations in San Francisco, 
which will usher in the Year of the Rat 
(4700), which should make all rodent lovers 
and budding psychologists deliriously hap- 
py. Also in February, and this one is with- 
in shouting distance, is the Livestock Show 
and Rodeo in Houston from Feb. 23 to March 3. 

March brings some of the spring type cele- 
brations, many of them quite close by. For 
the yachting crowd, there is the famous 
Miami-Nassau Ocean Yacht Race, which, while 
it can't be called a spectator sport exactly, 
might be fun to be around the shore crowd. 
That's on March S. March 17 is THE day for 
the Irish . . . there are St. Patrick's Day 
festivities in Boston, New York, Honolulu, 
St. Paul and finally in Shamrock, Texas; 
and forget that Paddy is no longer a saint-- 
that bunch in Rome obviously doesn't know 
what it are talking about. Meanwhile, out 
in California, swallow-watching becomes quite 
popular around San Juan Capistrano, as they

are due to return to that ancient village 
on March 20. Quite a number of art fes- 
tivals are due to begin in March; there is 
the Spring Festival of the Fine Arts in Rex- 
burg, Idaho, and the Arts and Crafts Festi- 
val at St. Augustine, Fla. 

Here in Louisiana, there is an Antique 
Show and Tour of Antebellum Homes at Jack- 
son, Centenary's old stomping ground. Gramb- 
ling has the North Louisiana Broiler and 
Swine Show, and Vivian (that little bend in 
the road just north of here) offers the 
Redbud Festival. Baton Rouge has two func- 
tions during the rainy month; the South- 
eastern Indian Festival and the Louisiana 
Heritage Tours. 

April brings out festivals in hordes, 
and you will be glad to hear that Louisiana 
has more than its share. Beginning in other 
parts of the country, you can hit the New 
York city Auto Show on April 1, which is 
scheduled to run through the 9th. April 2 
brings a bevy of Easter Sunrise Services, 
most spectacular being the one at the Grand 
Canyon, the most accessible taking place at 
Hodges Gardens just outside of Many. April 
19 brings on the Neches River Festival in 
Beaumont, Texas, while Oklahoma's contribu- 
tion to the world of fun and frolic, the 
89ers Day Celebration, begins on April 22 
in Guthrie. Some more art festivals start 
during this week, one in Little Rock from 
April 23 through May 13, another in Jackson 
Miss., from April 25 through 30. The In- 
ternational Azalea Festival holds forth in 
Norfolk, Va., also from April 25 through 
the 30. B 

Louisiana's offerings include Shreve- 
port's own Holiday in Dixie scheduled 
from April 22 through the end of the month. 
HID is not exactly what you would call a 
get out in the street and holler type af- 
fair, the people in charge of planning it 
usually manage to forget that Shreveport 
is made up of anything but the very rich, 
and so most of the activities are planned 
for that group; well, the masses do get a 
smattering of parades , but by and large the 
week is for the folks in the big houses ' 
There are a few things going on here that 
don't normally so the week is not entirely 
lost. } 

Elsewhere in Louisiana, there is the 
Cochon de Lait in Mansura, which is on 
La. Highway 1 north of New Roads. From 
Shreveport, it is best to take Highway 1 
southbound out of Alexandria; after you 
have gone about 70 miles, you will find 
your path blocked by booths and a great 
number of people . . . chances are that 
you have found the right place. Back in New 
Orleans, there is the Spring Fiesta, which 
involves tours of various parts of New Or- 
leans and environs; there is the Vieux Carre 
Homes Tours, Patios by Candlelight Tours 
Garden District Homes Tours, and Plantation 
Tours. Most of these cost about three to

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Page Eleven 



by Charles Churchman 

With the sunrise glinting off its 
polished boron -carbide composite skin, 
the manta-ray shaped gyrodyne waits pa- 
tiently for Joe to awaken and fly it to 
the city. 

Presently, Joe cycles down to the 
meadow where it sits, and stuffs his bike 
into the baggage access door. Climbing in- 
to the gyro, he checks the instrument panel 
for all- green lights (GO!), and then cranks 
up the turbines. 

Trimming up the two engines as they 
come to full power, he depresses the clutch 
with his left foot as his right foot de- 
presses the accelerator pedal; the gyro- 
slowly bounces into the air, tilting for- 
ward as Joe pushes the steering wheel away 
from .him. When the gyro gets going fast 
enough for its shape to hold it in the air, 
he lets the clutch out and starts flying 
it like a regular airplane. 

Climbing in three minutes to the high 
speed traffic lanes at 7000 feet, he settles 
down for the twenty minute, seventy-five 
mile trip to the city. 

Like all members of the breed, Joe's 
machine uses one system of propulsion for 
take-off, landing and hovering, and another 
for flight. Helicopters and fixed wing air- 
craft have only one system to perform all 
these functions. 

When Joe gets where he's going, he 
drops down out of the high speed lanes, 
slows up, puts in the clutch, and glides 
down to a gradual hover over his touchdown 
point. Then easing off on the accelerator, 
the gyrodyne slowly settles to the ground. 

A scenario for the 22nd century? Hard- 
ly. It's going to happen soon. We are on 
the threshold of a move to the air for 
transportation needs outside the cities. 
We're at a point with air travel now, ana- 
lagous to" the state of ground travel just 
before the Model T Ford was introduced. 

In the first five years of this century, 
automobiles were popular but their cost 
kept the average American from owning one. 
Basic models cost about a year's wages. 
When the Model T came out in 1908, at one 
quarter to one third the average annual 
wage, and at half the price of the near- 
est competitor, automobiles came within 
the reach of the general public. 

In 1971, the average cost for a family 



airplane is still substantially higher 
than the average annual wage. The base 
price for the most popular four seater-- 
the Cessna 172--is in the neighborhood 
of $15,000. It's as out of reach for 
today's family as the automobile was in 1905 
when it cost $2000-3000. 

But the initial cost of the mass pro- 




duced air, transportation vehicle for the 
post -technological society should start 
at a 1970 base price of less than $10,000, 
and decrease to about $5000 to $7000 within 
the next ten to fifteen years. When the 
price becomes substantially less than a 
year's wages, everybody will start buying 
them. 

Because aircraft are designed to last 
three to four times longer than Detroit's 
pieces of tin, transportation costs should 
be 30 per cent less than they are right now. 
Operating costs for aircraft are about the 
same as cars right now; and as the speed 
of travel increases, aircraft become a 
cheaper way to travel. 

When economics becomes a secondary con- 
sideration in the design of machinery, opera- 
ting characteristics become primary. Any- 
one who has walked the trails of our national 
parks knows that the average American, even 
when on vacation seeking the wilderness, 
peace and solitude, seldom goes more than a 
couple of hundred feet from his car. * While 
there are more than 12,000 airports in oper- 
ation just in the U. S., the average dis- 
tance to the airport will be measured in 
miles for years to come. And you're not 
going to get people to give up their cars 
if they have to lug groceries a couple of 
miles, even on a bicycle. The machine is 
going to have to come to the people, instead 
of the people going to the machine- -just 
as it should be in the post-technological 
society. 

The helicopter, however, is not the an- 



swer. Its operating costs are four to five 
times higher than fixed wing aircraft, and 
its initial cost is three to four times 
higher. The cheapest helicopters rent for 
$75 an hour, and cost $35,000; a comparable 
fixed wing aircraft rents for less than 
$10/hour, and costs less than $10,000. Heli- 
copters like to crash, while fixed wing air- 
craft like to fly. They are too difficult 
for the average person to fly safely. 

The analogy between aircraft today and 
the auto of 1900-1905 also holds for the 
production figures for each period. In 
1903, the largest car producer, Olds Motor 
Company, produced a little over two thou- 
sand automobiles for an entire year's pro- 
duction. Cessna, the largest private manu- 
facturer today, has produced 17,000 of their 
most popular 172's since it was introduced 
in 1962. 

In 1905 there were 78,800 automobiles in 
the United States with a population of 85 
million people; or one car for 1080 people. 
In 1969, with a population of 200 million, 
there were 191,000 private aircraft in 
operation- -one aircraft for every 1050 
people. 

By 1915, however, only ten years later- - 
in a society that moved considerably slow- 
er than today's, Ford produced its millionth 
Model T, and total auto production exceeded 
two million cars. While it would be wildly 
optimistic to continue the analog)' at this 
point , an annual aircraft production rate 
exceeding the total number of aircraft in 
use today could easily be achieved by 1980. 
But the price would have to be right; and 
the aircraft would have to take off and 
land vertically, and be simple to operate. 

If, to use Marshall McLuhan's words, 
the emerging society must envelop the old, 
then moving to the air is a natural progres- 
sion. These new air machines will travel 
at least twice as fast as the automobile, 
and be more economical. They will take off 
and land vertically, and there should be 
several million around by 1990. The develop- 
ment of this transportation system will 
have a far greater effect on our cities than 
the acquisition of the automobile.

THE CONGLOMERATE 



February 4, 1972 



Festival 

continued from page ten 
five dollars except for the Plantation Tours, 
which will run about $20.00. The Fiesta 
runs from April 7 through April 25. Ham- 
mond has two things going on during April; 
the Southeast Louisiana Agri-Dustrial Fu- 
turama and the Southeast Louisiana Dairy 
Festival. These are probably not worth the 
trip down unless you happen to be crazy a- 
bout-new soybean production methods or dairy 
cattle. Two other functions are the De Soto 
Parish Antebellum Homes Tour out of Mansfield 
and the East Ascension Parish Strawberry Fes- 
tival in Gonzales, just off the Airline High- 
way between Baton Rouge and- New Orleans. 

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fes- 
tival, which will undoubtably be the high- 
light of the month of April in Louisiana 
takes place at the same time as Shreveport 
celebrates Holiday in Dixie, (April 26 
through the 30). This jazz program and Heri- 
tage Fair will feature such outstanding jazz 
talent as Sonny Stitt, Thelonius Monk, B. 
B. King, Roberta Flack and the New Orleans 
Ragtime Orchestra, all playing at night at 
either a New Orleans hotel (as yet unnamed) 
or at the Municipal Auditorium for the Sat- 
urday night program. The Heritage Fair part 
of the festival will be held at the Pair- 
grounds, where they will have 5 stages, one 
each for soul, cajun and country-western, New 
Orleans and foreign jazz, gospel, and blues. 
Among the artists scheduled for the fair are 
Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Pete 
Williams, Roosevelt Sykes, Professor Long- 
hair, Clifton Chenier, Babe Stovall and the 
city's brass bands, the Olympia, the Eureka 
and the Original Tuxedo Brass Band. If 
last year's festival is any indication, 
there will also be great quantities of 
edibles, ranging from crawfish to muffe- 
lettas. The craft section of the fair is 
to feature the Coushatta Indians as well 
as local craftsmen and artists. 

May, while not officially the begin- 
ning of summer, is usually considered as 
such and quite often marks the opening of the 
all -summer affairs. Probably the most famous 
Shakespearean festival in the United States , 
the one at Ashland, Oregon, begins on May 
12 and goes through September 10. The Sum- 
mer Festival in New York City also begins 
in May (the 29th) and runs through Labor 
Day. 

Here in the state, there is the Breaux 
Bridge Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge 
(naturally) , and the Prougue Raxes on Bayou 
Barataria at Lafitte. Also you might try 
the Louisiana State University All-Arabian 
Horse Show in Baton Rouge, or maybe the May- 
Day Religious Pageant at St. MartinviMe. 

While this is not intended as a travel 
brochure, it will give you some ideas as 
to how you might spend some of your weekends 
this spring. Further information on any of 
these festivals can be obtained either by 

I mg the Louisiana Tourist Commission in 
Baton Rouge, or by writing or calling the 
chamber of commerce of the city involved.

RECORD REVIEWS 

Bob Dylan 

Well, it says here that Bob Dylan is back 
with us again, and that's all very nice to 
hear. Me, I ain't convinced. Neverthe- 
less , Columbia has given us an album called 
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Volume II (Columbia 
KG 31120) , and what an odd collection it is . 

The main reason people will buy this 
set is that on side four there are five un- 
released-cuts. 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time" is 
from an early live concert that almost was 
released on an album (some lucky people even 
own album covers that were sent out early 
to record stores) . Dylan sounds unsure of 
himself on it, possibly because his damn 
G-string is out of tune. 

"I Shall Be Released," 'You Ain't 
Going Nowhere," and "Down In The Flood" are 
from the legendary Basement Tape, but they're 
not the Basement Tape cuts. Instead, they 
are laid-back, Woodstock jams with fellow 
Woodstock folkie, Happy Traum. "I Shall Be 
Released" is a kind of desultory performance, 
and on "Down In The Flood," Traum seems to 
be having trouble following Dylan (under- 
standable, because Dylan isn't the most 
consistent musician going), and so the deli- 
cate, tense rhythms that made the original 
so great are lost. 

'You Ain't Going Nowhere" comes off 
brilliantly, though, with Dylan poking 
fun at the song , the Byrds , and maki,ng up 
the words more or less as he goes along. 
I'm amazed Happy could keep a straight face 
through the whole thing. 

The masterpiece, however, comes with 
a cut produced by Leon Russell, called ap- 
propriately, "When I Paint My Masterpiece." 
The Band attempted this one on cahoots, but 
they blew it badly. Dylan has new words for 
it , and his singing on this song is so per- 
fectly hard and biting that you sense an 
extra dimension to the words. The backup 
rocks like it should, and the whole thing 
comes off as yet the latest Dylan triumph. 

The main trouble with the album is that 
Columbia, which has a plethora of unre- 
leased alternate takes and so on sitting 
right there in their vaults , could have 
chosen some of these cuts (the live 'Tom 
Thumb's Blues," for instance, which far out- 
paces the studio original, or the re- 
hearsal version of "She Belongs To Me," 
which is one of the most serene pieces of 
music imaginable) over the already over- 
familiar ones they have included here. And 
I 'm not sure at all that those five songs 
of this alubum or the bother one has to 
go through to get to them. 

--Ed Ward/AFS 

The Kinks 

Fans of the Kinks will note that their 
new record is on RCA, after a good six years 
on Reprise. The story behind the switch 
is one of those music biz tales that really 
disturbs you if you think about it, con- 
sidering the implications and all. 

What happened is that Reprise, (part of 
the semi -insidious Kinney family of labels 
that includes Warner Brothers, At 
and Elektra) started coming on to Ra 
head Kink and main songwriter, by telling 
him he was far superior to the rest of the 
members of the band. 

They suggested that, after all these 
- , Davies chuck the Kinks and go out 
on his own, with an acoustic guitar, as kind 
James Taylor solo act. Davi

artists of their caliber. Maybe someday 
the Kinks will repay them by doing another

Vegetable Mosaics 

and 
Reverent Orgasm 

WHO: Everyman Players, WHAT: Book of 
Job, WHEN: Last week, WHERE: First Bap- 
tist Church of Shreveport. 

Come with me as we climb the hill to the 
great-God-center of the universe (at least 
Shreveport); entering the opened door we 
find a regrigerator filled with noisy vege- 
tables dressed as if they were people. 
Quietly we sit on the second shelf covered 
with rasberry jam cushions and await the 
orgasm of electric sights and sounds. Be- 
fore the door is closed and the play can 
get underway General Electric mounts a 
pile of strawberries and speaks interminab- 
ly on the cost of reverent orgasm these 
davs; then passes the old tin sardine cans 
in hopes the multitude will realize they're 
not in front of a TV set and fork out enough 
to pay his grocery bill ($900.00 per day 
we're told) . 

The four asparagus tips up front tear 
labels off nearby pickle jars and use them 
as envelopes to stuff in their "comparable 
to a $2.00 movie ticket" offering. The 
envelopes are for your name so you can de- 
duct the price off your income tax later. 
I pity the mass but feel invited, having 
played this circuit before in the Corey's 
production of the Pilgrim's Pro gress , 
and don't give my fair share. The bald to- 
matoes on the first shelf must hate me! I 
smile, trying to simulate a bottle of cat- 
sup hoping that'll appease anyone noticing. 

The sights and sounds were good. The quest 
for asthetic expression of the mystical or 
a statement of the metaphysical could have 
been satisfied but for the living noises 
of most of those who attended. 

As I was leaving a stuffed Bell Pepper 
with glasses and a fur-trimmed coat thanked 
me for coming to the 1104th performance of 
Job ; but before I could take a bite out of 
a piece of cold turkey near the lobby, I 
was whisked away to an oriental restaurant 
where the gastronomy was quieter and my 
mind could muse over the Corey's proli ' 
production. 

Job is old; it was begun several ye

sixty-foot cliff behind it and a

by John 



The hot-and-cold Centenary- 
Gents were hot Wednesday night 
as they defeated Northwes- 
tern State 78-74 in the third 
meeting between the two teams. 
The Demons had won the two pre- 
vious meetings, both by seven 
point margins. But Wednesday 
night was the Gents ' night as 
they moved to a four point half- 
time lead and never lost it. 
However, the game was not de- 
cided until "Roadrunner" 
Home, who also scored the 
first points of the game, 
with 18 seconds left to ice the 
Gent victory. 

dropped in a free' throw with 
18 seconds left to ice the 
Gent victory. 

In the first couple of 
minutes the Gents raced to a 
9-3 lead only to have the De- 
mons tie it up 9-9 a little 
later. Also in the early going 
the Demons received a big blow 
when Thurman Baptiste, the 
Demons ' top rebounder suffered 



a severe finger injury and 
was forced to leave the game. 
The game was pretty even for 
the first ten minutes, but the 
Gents took the lead for good 
24-22 on Larry Davis' 2- 
pointer with 9:33 left in the 
half. From there, the Gents 
increased their lead to 10 at 
43-33 as John Hickerson scored 
on a spinning, twisting drive. 
However, the lead was short- 
lived as the Demons cut it to 
45-41 at the half. The first 
half was marked by 27 personal 
fouls and 3 technicals called 
on the two teams . 

The second half was played 
on fairly even terms as the 
Gents maintained a 3 to 8 point 
margin throughout. The Demons 
made several runs but could 
never come closer than 3 points. 
Larry Davis and John Hicker- 
son were the big guns in the 
Gent victory. Davis played the 
entire game and scored 24 points 
as well as leading the Gents in 
assists with 5. Hickerson, who 




Leading Gent scorer, Larry Davis, drives for two more 
points in Wednesday's game with Northwestern. Davis totaled 
24 points as the Gents defeated the Demons. 



had pulled a muscle in his back 
only last Saturday, pumped in 22 
points, mostly in the second 
half. John also pulled down 
10 rebounds to lead the Gents 
in this category. 

The Gent victory oversha- 
dowed a brilliant performance 
by Demon guard Vemon Wilson, 



who scored 35 points to fuel 
the Demon attack. 

The Gents outshot the De- 
mons from the floor, but once 
again had trouble at the free- 
throw line as, they only hit 
59? of their shots from the 
15-foot stripe. The Gents 

outrebounded the Demons 
44-39. 



People are not just the cause 
of the"population problem." 

They're also the victims. 



Traffic jams. Overcrowded 
schools. Inadequate housing. 
Increasing unemployment. 
Pollution. Almost any urban, 
social and environmental 
problem you can name is fast 
becoming a nightmare. 

And in one way or another 
affects us all. 

Of course, these problems 
would still exist even if popula- 
tion growth were zero, because 
population growth is not their 
basic cause. Therefore solving 
them must obviously become 
society's number one priority. 
However, the pressures of an 
ever-increasing population tend 
to intensify our problems. And 
make them harder to solve. 

( By the year 2000, Census 
Bureau projections estimate 
our population could grow close 
to 300 million. That's about 100 
million more people to house, 
transport, educate, feed and 
clean up after!) 

This intensifying of problems 
by sheer numbers of people can 
also occur in individual house- 
holds. For just as "too many 
people" make society's problems 
more difficult to solve, the 
problems of raising a family 
are not made easier when there 
are "too many children." 

Under the circumstances, we 
feel there's only one reason for 
a couple to have a child : 
because they really want it. 

And are ready for it — 
emotionally, and not just 
financially. 



There's also only one time to 
have that child : when it's 
wanted. When it can be a 
welcome addition rather than 
an accidental burden. 

Unfortunately, research has 
consistently shown that not 
enough Americans I from every 
walk of life) are aware of the 
benefits of family planning. 

Or even how to go about it. 

That's what we're all about. 

And frankly, we can use all 
the help we can get. 

Especially from thoughtful 
people who understand how 
unplanned pregnancies can 
intensify the already severe 
problems society has still 
to solve. 

People who will, at the very 
least, help others understand 
that the population problem not 
only has a cause. It has victims.

Gentlets Roll Again,SFA 
Falls 112-91 in Dome 




Gentlet Rick Jacobs goes in 
for a lay-up against Stephen F. 
Austin Wednesday night in the Gold 
Dome. The Gentlets won the game, 
112-91, raising their record to 
15 wins and only 3 losses. It 
was the eighth time the Gent- 
lets had scored over 100. 



The Centenary Gentlets, who 
had their nine -game winning 
streak snapped by Northeast Mon- 
day, got back on the winning 
track Wednesday night as they 
raced by Stephen F. Austin, 
112-91. The victory raised 
the Gentlet record to 15-3 
as they prepare for their game 
at Grambling tomorrow night. 

The Gentlets got off to a 
slav start in the first few 
minutes of the game, but took 
the lead for the first time at 
5-4. After they got the lead 
they never lost it, as they piled 
up an 18-point half-time lead, 
63-45. 

The Lumberjacks bounced back 
in the early going of the second 
half and cut the lead to ten 
points at 77-67. However, the 
Gentlets bounced back and pulled 
away for good. With 9:25 left 
the lead was back up to 20 
points as Rick Jacobs went in 
for a lay-up on a pass from 
Leon Johnson. The Gentlets 
hit the century mark with 5:52 
left as Johnson hit a 12 -foot 
jumper. For the. night, John- 
son was once again the big 
gun in the Gentlet attack. 
Leon hit over 70% of his shots 
from the floor and all his chari- 
ty tosses as he totaled 35 
points. He also grabbed off 
18 rebounds to tie Jerry Waugh 
for game high honors in that 
category. Leon also had 5 as- 
sists during the game. John- 
son was not the only Gentlet to 
turn in a good performance. Stan 
Welker scored 24 points as 
he quarterbacked the Gentlet 
attack. Besides his 18 rebounds, 
Waugh also scored 17 points 
and had 6 assists. Rick Ja- 
cobs also scored in double 
digits as he hit for 15 points. 

The Gentlets also won the 
battle underneath the boards,

THE CONGLOMERATE 



Dome Tourney Results Soccer Is Back 



Page Fifteen 



The two basketball tournaments hosted by 
Centenary in the Gold Dome since the end 
of last semester were only successful to a 
degree. The Holiday Tourney co-sponsored 
by Centenary and the Shreveport Sports Foun- 
dation was not at all successful financially. 
Only about 1600 people turned out for the two- 
night tourney. At present, the future of 
this tournament is very much in doubt. If 
it does occur next year, it will be under 
the sole financial sponsorship of the Sports 
Foundation, according to Centenary Athletic 
Director Orvis Sigler, although Centenary will 
participate in the tournament if it exists. 
At present, the Sports Foundation is inves- 
tigating the possibility of having a tour- 
namet in early December. 

The Centenary Freshman Tournament will 
return next January, probably with a new 
format. With the new NCAA freshman rule, 
the tourney will probably become a JV event, 
limited to freshmen and sophomores. This 
year's tournament almost broke even and 
was well-recieved by the participating 
teams according to Sigler. The University 
of Houston and the University of Texas at 
Arlington have already expressed interest 
in next year's tournament. 

As for the results of the tournaments, 
Centenary did fairly well. In the Holiday 
event, the Gents lambasted Trinity only 
to lose to Northwestern in the finals, 89- 
82. In the Freshman Tourney, the fast- 
moving Gentlets raced by Northwestern, 
Northeast, and Louisiana Tech to win the 
event hands down. 



SGA No Trip Successful 
But Genfs Lose Two Games 




Soccer season is with us again, and the 
Centenary team will swing into action next 
Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday's game will Last weekend two busloads of Centenary stu- 
be against Jesuit, to be played at Barks- dents, staff, and faculty members journeyed 
dale AFB at 4:00 p. m. Barksdale will be t0 New Orleans to follow the Gent basket - 
the opponent for Thursday, also, to be played ball team in their games in the Crescent City. 

Sponsored by the SGA, the trip was quite 
successful, although the Gents lost both 
games, to LSUNO 83-75 and to Loyola 104- 
93. 

The group, beseiged by rain and cold 
weather throughout the trip, stayed at the 
Sheraton Charles in downtown New Orleans , 
although it seemed that some of the travel- 
lers pitched tents on Bourbon Street. 
Besides a temporary bus breakdown near 
Alexandria, the highlight of the return 
trip (at least on one of the buses) was 
the driver's rather bawdy, but entertaining 
jokes the last couple of hours of the trip. 
Although the too games were exciting, the 
home teams registered decisive victories 
over the Gents. At LSUNO the Gents received 
somewhat less than a cordial welcome. The 
Gent followers were also ordered to give 
up their seats and move to the other side 
of the gym, where they had tried to sit in 
the first place. In the small, stuffy, 
packed gym with the Privateer band playing 
constantly, the Gents became the 37th con- 
secutive victim to succumb to the Privateers 
in their home gym. 

The next night across town at the Loyola 
Field House, the Gents were trounced by 
an aroused Loyola team. In the large, 
empty field house, the Wolfpack, stirred 
up by the previous day's announcement that 
the school was dropping all intercollegiate 
athletics at the end of the year, ran away 
from the Gents, 104-93. Loyola coach Bob 
Lutska called it one of his teams two or 
three best games of the season. 

The defeats lowered the Gent road record 
to 1-6, a record they will be attempting to 
improve tomorrow night in Hattiesburg, Miss, 
when they play Southern Mississippi, a team 
the Gents defeated here last week, 85-74.

The prisoner-of-war issue is

COED DORM RAP 



Did you ever listen to one of 
those night-time radio phone-in 
talk shows and wonder how the host's 
"special invited guests" worked up 
the courage to appear on the pub- 
lic firing line? Perhaps WSGA 
(Women's Student Government Asso- 
ciation) President Jeanne Pruden 
and campus Chaplain Robert Ed Tay- 
lor can help provide some hard- 
earned answers . 

Jeanne and Robert Ed, accom- 
panied by CONGLOMERATE Editor Taylor 
Caffery, were the guests of Richard 
Holwill Wednesday night on KWKH Ra- 
dio's Party Line. While most of the 
on -campus students watched Marcel 
Camus' classic '*Black Orpheus" in 
the Moore Student Center, the Par- 
ty Line team handled with relative 
aplomb questions concerning coed 
dormitories, campus lifestyles, and 
hotbeds of radicalism, as asked by 
a large variety of Shreveport radio 
listeners . 

Holwill, an ex-U. S. Marines 
Public Relations officer who has 
replaced Ed deForest as Party Line 
moderator, opened the program by 
leading a fifteen minute introduc- 
tory discussion on the coed dormi- 
tory proposal. Both Jeanne and 
Robert Ed attempted to make it clear 
to listeners that the proposal is 
still being considered by Dr. Allen 
and the board, that under the pro- 
posed system men and women would 
live on separate floors, and that 
parental permission would be re- 
quired to live in the one dorm in 
which the living experiment would 
take place. 




The first caller Wednesday night 
was senior Kathy Parrish, who ar- 
gued that a coed dormitory would 
lend a more relaxed atmosphere to 
campus life. As is stands now, she 
stated, "if you go out with a boy 
once, you're 'engaged to be mar- 
ried. '" 

A second caller, identifying 
himself only as "Jessie," advised 
Holwill 's guests that coed dormi- 
tories are unconstitutional. 

Following Jessie, listener Al 

CURTIS QUITS 

Centenary Admissions Department 
recruiter Wayne Curtis has resigned 
his position, administration sour- 
ces have reported. He will be re- 
placed by '69 Centenary graduate 
John Walker, a former president of 
the student body. 

Curtis , who is reported by 
insiders to have disagreed with 
numerous department policies, will 
enter the business world. Walker, 
recently discharged from the Army, 
will join his fraternity contempo- 
rary David Dent on the staff. 



Gibson of Cedar Grove opined that 
the proposed experiment "sounds 
to me like a good experience, if 
it's supervised right." 

Other Centenary students to 
call that night were SGA Secretary 
Sandy Bogucki (who wondered why stu- 
dents , old enough to vote as full 
citizens and to be drafted, should 
not be able to choose their own 
lifestyles) and Paul Giessen (who 
compared coed dorms to his family 
situations) . 

Caller Jane Williams believed 
that coed dorms would "degenerate" 
from separate floor to same floor 
arrangements, eventually leading 
to "them bunking together. It's 
just like integration..." 

In contrast was a Mrs. Brown 
who, identifying herself as a se- 
nior citizen, stated, "I want Cen- 
tenary to keep up with the modern 
colleges . If they are having this 
type of living quarters, I want 
Centenary to have it. Centenary 
is great, and it means a lot to 
Shreveport." 

Another lady caller who did not 
give her name revealed that she had 
opposed the coed dorm idea upon 
initially learning of it, but that 
she had started to change "my mind 
tonight. There's some wonderful 
points being brought out." She 
felt that living in the separate 
floor dorms would induce students 
to look better. 

On Tuesday night, Holwill 's 
guests will be two Texans who are 
opposed to the teaching of Darwinism j 
in schools .

This statement is not an editorial

in the same issue point out activities

PUBLICATIONS POLICY 



In a meeting Wednesday, the members 
of the Publications Committee passed 
a motion selecting two members (the 
Editor and Dr. Gallagher) to research, 
write, and present to the committee, a 
statement of policy of the committee. 

We plan to look at policy statements 
of publications on other campuses, the 
pertinent sections of the "Student Bill 
of Rights" drafted in 1966, at past 
CONGLOMERATE standards. 

The Committee defeated a resolution 
to utilize the statement of purpose of 
the College, as printed on page five of 
the catalogue, as the committee's policy.

Repress ion 

The word "repression" is now so abused 
in political discourse that there is risk 
in using it at all. But there does exist 
repression today—repression in the psy- 
chological sense. It has nothing to do 
with the scare word used by the wreckers. 
It is the repression of those who feel 
outrage but cannot or will not articulate 
it, and therefore repress it. What the 
consequence will be, nobody can foretell. 
The Liberals, who thanks to their training 
and their guilt are more sensitive in 
these matters, worry about backlash. It 
hasn't come, though it still could. What

Far r ell Wins Post 



In the runoff election held Tuesday 
Tim Farrell received 106 votes to win the 
post of second vice president of the 
Student Government Association Executive 
Council. He was followed by Theresa 
McConnell with 66 votes and Jeff Daiell 
with 32. 

1 Theresa McConnell, Tim Farrell and 
Jeff Daiell led the balloting in the 
first write-in election held Monday. 
The voter turnout was remarkably 
good considering lack of publicity 

' on the election. Others receiving 
votes in that first balloting were John 
McWilliams, Tom Guerin, Sherry Lewis, 
Mike McGovem, Tom Gordon, Charlie Holmes, 
Pat Speck, Ed Baker, John Hood Roberts, 
Melvin Russell, Ed Merritt, Kathy Par- 
rish, Chris Blanchard, Glen Morse, Ray

Netta Hares, John Q. Petersen, Kerry 
Bruce, Mike Grant, Craig Gardner, Pam 
Sargent, Brad Emmert, Dean Whiteside, 
and Mark McMirray. 



we have seen so far is something less con- 
crete: a widespread alienation. In- 
stitutions that once supported plain citi- 
zens --public opinion, government, the chur- 
ches, the schools, the culture --now fail 
them- -when they don't actually turn on 
them. The plain citizen (the "silent 
majority") is thus adrift in a hostile 
world. Sometimes he responds by dropping 
out or turning inward: in some way trying 
to build himself a little island of order. 
Sometimes he will seek escape in drugs 
or promiscuity, the adventures of des- 
pair. Sometimes he will look for a sub- 
stitute for the church he has left (or 
the church that has left him) , and so he 
turns to superstitions like astrology, or 
to kook cults, or to counterfeit religions 
called ideologies. But always, he suffers 
a radical insecurity, a fundamental loss 
of confidence: the prevailing mood today. 
Since man is not meant to live like this, 
the danger is that Americans will reach 
for anything to fill the awful void. 
Because something is better, less intoler- 
able, than nothing.

Conservative Book Club 

McGovern 

Durham, New Hampshire—In an editorial 
following Senator McGovern 's appearance at 
the University of New Hampshire, the 
New Hampshire reported, "George McGovern, 
as if electrically charged, touched the 
three thousand or so people who had gathered 
to see him and brought them to their feet 
for a standing ovation." 

McGovern told the New Hampshire students 
that President Nixon has broken his pledges 
to the young people of America in four cri- 
tical areas: voting rights, unemployment, 
education, and appointments to positions 
in the government. He pointed out that 
while there have been 2,635 President ap- 
pointments during the first two - and- a- 
half years of the Nixon Administration, only 
4 per cent have gone to people under 30 
years of age. 

"Let us take the nearly $1 billion which 
President Nixon wanted to spend for a snob 
appeal airplane to send the rich to Paris 
and put it to work where we need it. The 
McGovem Administration would take that $1 
billion and use it to provide 200,000 scholar- 
ships at $5,000 each for college students," 
M cGovern s ai d .

To the Editor: 

Instructor Garvin has in the past given 
ample proof that he is a poor loser. Now 
he has demonstrated that he is as well a 
shoddy winner. 

In his article covering this month's 
general election, Mr. Garvin yelped like 
a Mafia chieftain betrayed to the FBI by 
a trusted lieutenant. His attempt to por- 
try those Johnston supporters who either 
(1) did not share his and Mr. Edwards'-- 
and Gillis Long's --mystical, Hegelian 
sleight -of -mind that ganger methods are 
commendable if only performed by the great 
god, Government, or (2) could not stomach 
Edwards' populist demogoguery, exploitation 
of fictitious class tensions, and crass 
appeal to atavistic sectionalism, as im- 
mature children can only be descried as a 
cheap-shot. 

Mr. Garvin was upset because thousands 
of Johnston supporters did not share his 
primordial creed that 'party loyalty' must 
override values and beliefs. I can see Mr. 
Garvin supporting his party should it nomi- 
nate George Wallace for President! Or 
would he take his ball and go home? 

Fortunately for Shreveport, Mr. Garvin 
and his party's robotic followers could 
not produce a clean sweep, and the Repub- 
lican Party caught District Five off-guard. 
Still waiting for a change, 
Jeff Daiell

Obscenity 

To the Editor: 

I am really glad to see that you in- 
tend to "use that language which is most 
acceptable and effective with the student 
body in communicating . . . thoughts." 

I believe a true journalist need not 
resort to "obscenity" to express an edu- 
cated opinion. My respect for the paper 
is lessened when I find "obscene" language 
in the CONGLOMERATE. 

Noting your concern to communicate to 
the campus, I am sure you will endeavor to 
discover the gTeat variety among the stu- 
dents and the diverse means of communica- 
tion, some obscene, but some not. 
Thank you,

THE CONGLOMERATE 



February 11, 1972 



Harlan Ellison Holds Forth 



by John Wafer 
Harlan Ellison blew into town this 
last week, spouting obscenities, leering 
at women, reading a couple of his stories, 
and looking like a latter day Frankie Ava- 
lon. Officially, he writes science fic- 
tion, but has dabbled in script writing 
for a number of different types of TV 
shows, including, for Chrissake, "The 
Flying Nun". The following interview 
was taken with the diminutive Ellison 
sprawled on his bed in the guest room 
of James. Dormitory. 

******* 

CONGLOMERATE: What in your oninion, 
is the reason for the renewal in 
interest in Science Fiction within 
the past few years? 
ELLISON: Well, there are several rea- 
sons. I think the chief one is a matter 
of college students and young adults recog- 
nizing in a kind of sub-cellular way that 
reality and fantasy in this country have 
blurred one into the other so completely 
that it is virtually impossible to tell 
them apart, and SF, which has always been 
considered sort of fantastic, deals more 
concretely with the problems of today 
than what is considered realistic fiction. 
In a mainstream fiction, you wind up with 
a Portnoy's Complaint , which is terribly 
introspective, where with SF, you end up 
dealing with the great questions of our 
time, the effects of technology on man, 
man's relation to nature and his universe, 
what is our responsibility to ourselves, 
what responsibility does society have to 
us. These are very big, profound Socra- 
tic sort of ideas that mainstream fiction 
is apparently unable or unwilling to deal 
with, and I think college people in par- 
ticular are interested in these type of 
ideas, the resurgence of interest in Hesse 
is another example of interest in the 
great philosophical ideas, and it is very 
much a fiction of the times, and has be- 
come in a way, street fiction because it 
is directed to the needs of the people of 
the United States. 

CONGLOMERATE: What can you do with 
Science Fiction that you cannot do with 
"mainstream" fiction? 

ELLISON: SF is a genre, a form of its 
own; but within the framework of science 
fiction there is virtually no boundary. 
You can write anything you can write, al- 
legory, fable, black humor, terribly rea- 
listic, naturalistic fiction, almost any- 
thing; but you have added that dimension, 
a mythic quality to it, it becomes larger 
than in a western, Gothic or mainstream 
novel. It is one of the few forms in 
which there is no restriction, which is 
why so many literary figures are coming 
to SF. In writing, in the last few years, 
Nabakov, John Updike, John Hersey to name 
a few. It is a different kind of writing 
and some of the greatest writing of all 
time is in science fiction. People tend 
to exclude them because they are classics, 
Gulliver's Travels , 1984 , but they are 
actually science fiction . 

CONGLOMERATE: You have been doing a 
lot of work in television recently; what 
sort of freedoms does this allow, or 
should I say, what sort of restrictions 
does this place upon your work? 

ELLISON: I am scheduled to testify 
before the Irving Commission, and what I 
am going to say to them is that tele- 
vision is a killing medium, that there, is 
a coterie of writers in Hollywood who are 
some of the best which this country has 
ever produced, playwrights, novelists, 
who are hamstrung by censorship, which is 
virtually total. This ranges from a self- 
censorship where one won't bother to write 
something because they know they won't do 
it, all the way up to blatant censorship, 
which says, for example, that you can't 
have a black girl with a white man, it's 
got to be a black man with a white woman 
or you can't attack the large drug com- 
panies, or you can't attack the large 
automobile manufacturers, because, in 
some ways, the networks are arms of the 




most oppressive elements in our society, 
the most backwards, the most "red-necked." 
They program for the lowest possible com- 
mon denominator, which means that every- 
thing gets turned into mulch, nothing rises 
above the surface, nothing sticks its head 
up. You can't even offend the Mafia any- 
more y 0U can't use the word, they say 
"organization" or "syndicate," so you 
can see that it is pretty horrendous. I 
have been writing for television for a- 
bout eleven years , and the reason that I 
won't do very many now is that I make 
quite a lot of money and I dpn't have to; 
I can pick my shots . I have written only 
three scripts in the last three years, 
because I will not work for a show unless 
they can guarantee me that they will not 
screw around with my worlds, they will 
not change anything , (BLIP) , 

CONGLOMERATE: What shows would you write 
for now? 

ELLISON: There is virtually nothing on 
television that I am interested in writing 
for now, maybe "Columbo;" I would write for 
"All in the Family" except that a very 
dear friend does write it, and he does such 
a hell of a job that I won't get near 
it because I want to see all of his scripts. 
I have written for 'The Young Lawyers" 
most recently, and I was story editor for 
"The Sixth Sense" for about seven weeks, 
but that became sort of a fiasco as far 
as I was concerned, so I wouldn't write for 
them; I don't know who I would write for 
now, maybe "Hawaii Five-O"; they're doing 
so well in the ratings that they are get- 
ting away with some pretty heavyweight 
stories. They did a thing on rape a 
couple of weeks ago which was very inter- 
esting, because it dealt with the whole 
machismo thing, about a guy who had not 
done the rape but took the blame for it 
because he wanted everyone to think that 
he was a man ... it was a fascinating 
idea. They're after me to write some 
scripts for them, but,_aside from them, 
there is no one else I would write for. 
I'm writing for films now. 

CONGLOMERATE: You were also doing some 
work with Theodore Sturgeon and A. E. Van 
Vogt. What was that? 

ELLISON: We were collaborating on a 
series of short stories which will appear 
in a new book, Partners in Wonder , along 
with about 14 other writers. 

CONGLOMERATE: It seemed odd, though, 
what with your affiliation with Los 
Angeles Free Press , and Sturgeon's 
writing tor National Review would 
seem to indicate some basic socio- 



political ideological differences. 
ELLISON:, No, quite the contrary, 
as a matter of fact, Ted always says, 
"My reviews appear in the N ational 
Review, that doesn't mean Fam with 
the National Review ." Ted is about 
as liberal as 1 am, our political 
positions are almost identical. I am 
a little more militant than he is, 
but that is only because Ted is a 
little more gentle than I am. By 
the same token, just because I wrote 
for the Free Press doesn't :uean that 
I agree with the Free Press either. 

CONGLOMERATE: What do you think of Art 
Kunkin (editor of the L . A. Free Press) ? 

ELLISON- I think Art Kunkin is a very 
nice man who unfortunately got bought by 
the establishment, and got bought in the 
name of all the things he believed in. He 
believed it was all right to mess over 
these people in this way; he's a guy who 
is out of date. He was a big radical type 
in the thirties and forties and time has 
passed him by. He doesn't realize that 
in the "movement," one has to keep re- 
affirming one's credentials every day. 
it doesn't matter that you marched with 
Martin Luther King, what did you do to- 
day? Art just wanted to keep the paper 
alive because he thought it was doing 
such a good thing that he wound up screw- 
ing over his own people and they walked 
out on him. And I went with them. 

CONGLOMERATE: You may have seen a 
story which appeared on the wire ser- 
vices the other day, about this gadget 
called a "space narc." 
ELLISON: A what? 

CONGLOMERATE: A lovely little satel- 
lite which hurdles around the earth snap- 
ping photographs of poppy fields and dope 
fields. How far, as one who thinks about 
electronic gadgetry as part of your work, 
do you think that such practices as "elec- 
tronic surveillance" will be allowed to go? 

ELLISON: Well, no one -is going to 
stop it, because if you try to stop it, 
they tag you as subversive. The secret 
of the whole thing is that 1984 has been 
with us for any number of years. The Il- 
linois Bureau of Investigation, the I. B. I., 
is like a minor league bullshit, John 
Birch investigative arm; this whole para- 
military thing. You've got them in Colo- 
rado, a whole computer bank full. They're 
watching everybody. All you have to do 
is say that Spiro Agnew is an idiot and 
you find yourself in the banks. And once 
you're in them, you're in there forever. 

I find it wholly offensive, I think it 
is quite at odds with what Jefferson in- 
tended for our nation. I think they treat 
all American people as though they were 
criminals. I know a guy who is a cop, 
a lieutenant, and he says that the atti- 
tude of the police has changed over the 
last thirty years ; where it used to be 
"them" or "us," they were talking about the 
people and the cops against the criminals , 
the criminals being John Dillinger and 
others like him. Now when cops talk about 
them and us they mean those with badges 
are "us" and everybody else is "them." 
And these people who carry signs around 
saying "support your local police," they 
really don't know what they're doing. 
They are sealing their own doom. We 
have given far too much power to the po- 
lice, the army and these surveillance 
people. We have accepted a view of Amer- 
ica today that is filled with criminals , 
top to bottom, and what we really are is 
a nation of discontented people who have 
come to the realization that a lot of the 
institutions that we have banked on, that 
we believed in in our own little Jack Arm- 
strong way, just don't work anymore, and 
rather than try to change them and bring 
them up to date and make them serve the 
people, we are trying to bend and mold 
the people into a kind of box where they 
will serve the institutions, and that is 
utter corruption of humanity; a debasement' 
of the human spirit. As you can tell, I 
am wholly against it.

LittlemagS'. Literary Alternatives 

By Richard Morris/AFS 



In Berkeley, Joel Deutsch is setting the 
type for the last issue of MEATBALL and John 
Oliver Simon is selling copies of ALDEBARAN 
REVIEW on Telegraph Avenue. In Salt Lake 
City, Charlie Potts gets LITMUS from the 
printer and goes on the road looking for 
bookstores that will give it away free. In 
New York, Kirby Congdon looks in his post 
office box to see if any new manuscripts 
have come in for MAGAZINE, and then goes out 
job hunting. In East Lansing, Hugh Fox is 
writing grant applications so that he can 
get the $500 he needs to repair his press 
and print another issue of GHOST DANCE. 
Meanw.ule, hundreds of other editors like 
them are busy soliciting manuscripts or 
trying to get together the money they need 
to print their littlemags. 

The "littlemag" is the contemporary ver- 
sion of the "little magazines," which print- 
ed the early work of such writers as Eli- 
ot, Joyce, Ezra Pound, e. e. cummings and 
Hemingway in the 1920's--along with hun- 
dreds of other writers who have long been 
forgotten. Like their 1920 counterparts 
the littlemags have small circulations, 
usually around 500 or 1000 (hence the term 
"little") and specialize in printing po- 
etry and fiction that is unacceptable to 
commercial publications. 

No one really knows how many little mags 
there are. Estimates run from 200 to 600. 
Because of their irregular publication- - 
sometimes two or three years have elapsed 
between subsequent issues of a magazine-- 
it would be hard to say which figure is 
nearest the truth. It is obvious, however, 



Valuable 
Exhibit 



tnat they are numerous. The introduction 
of cheap offset printing and the growth of 
an audience that is looking for alternatives 
to the output of the mass media have caused 
their numbers to increase until they exist 
almost everywhere. There is a concen- 
tration of littlemags in New York, but 
these are heavily outnumbered by magazines 
in such places as Iowa City, Albuquerque, 
Milwaukee, Houston, Virginia City, Nevada 
and Ona, West Virginia. 

University reviews such as ANTIOCH and 
PARTISAN should not be confused with little- 
mags. The former place an emphasis on the 
publication of criticism and show an esta- 
blishment concern with literary tradition; 
the latter print little but original wri- 
ting and often attempt to carry out guer- 
rilla actions against literary tradition. 
A university review is likely to print es- 
says with such titles as 'Wallace Stevens: 
The False and True Sublime," while the 
littlemag prints work called "Beyond V. D." 
or "The Ecological Suicide Bus." 

In the 1940's and 50 's, when littlemags 
were few and when there was a heavy em- 
phasis on the writing and publication of 
criticism, the university reviews had a 
profound influence on American writing. 
But today the reviews are folding at a 
time when littlemags are mushrooming, and 
the situation has changed drastically. 
One of the best known reviews, KENYON, 
recently ceased publication, and some 
others are in severe financial difficul- 
ties. Although it is unlikely that the 
university reviews will disappear, they 
have lost the importance they once had. 



Many of them, in fact, are now letting 
themselves be influenced by the littlemags. 
Only a few, like the SOUTHERN REVIEW, seem 
determined to continue being tombstones to 
the literature of 40 years ago. 

Strangely, few of the littlemags are 
overtly political. There are probably 
several reasons for this. Most of the edi- 
tors and contributors are already committed 
to the alternatives that can be developed in 
American society; hence they don't feel the 
need to do any convincing. Furthermore, 
they often feel that printing innovative 
writing is a revolutionary activity in it- 
self, whether the material printed has any 
political content or not. Sometimes they 
seem to go to extremes in this respect. 
For example, William Want ling, editor of 
PENTABARF, says, 'We even accept Fascist 
work if well-written and presented." But 
Want ling is only emphasizing that work will 
be judged according to its literary merit 
and that he is not interested in the ques- 
tion of whether a piece of writing has "ac- 
ceptable" political content or not. 

With their small circulations and irregu- 
lar publication, do littlemags have any im- 
portance? Is the writer who publishes for 
an audience of 500 --most of them probably 
aspiring writers themselves- -doing any- 
thing more than going on an ego-trip? These 
are difficult questions to answer. The 
littlemags have not been widely publicized, 
and their audience, though much larger than 
it was 10 years ago, is still a small and 
elite one. Yet this does not keep the 
younger writers from publishing their best 
work in littlemags . A writer who does not 
want to imitate the stuff that appears in 
ATLANTIC or in THE NEW YORKER and who does 
not want to compromise in order to reach 
a mass audience, has no other choice. Hence 
anyone who picks up a recently published book 
of poems , or any of the numerous antholo- 
gies that have come out in the past few 
years, is likely to find quite a few little- 
mags mentioned on the acknowledgments page. 
Littlemags are important to the writer 
because they are often the only place he 
can see his work in print before it appears 
in book form (sometimes these books are pub- 
lished by small presses, the counterparts 
of littlemags --but that's another subject). 
They're important because they show pub- 
lishers and critics what is being written. 
And they're important to anyone who wants 
to read the most interesting writing of 



Despujols 
To Open 



Twenty- five paintings from Centenary's 
valuable Jean Despujols collection of 
Indochina paintings will go on exhibit in 
the Library foyer Sunday. 

The announcement was made last week by 
Mr. Willard Cooper of the Art Department. 

The 360 -piece Despujols collection, val- 
ued historically as well as artistically, 
were purchased by Dallas oilman Algur H. 
Meadows and given to Centenarv College in 
May of 1969. 

The collection's value has been placed 
at a quarter million dollars. Without an 
existing building suitable for permanent 
display, the collection is kept "in moth- 
balls" through most of the year, and is 
liberated occasionally for public viewing. 

Works in the collection were painted 
by French neo-dassicist Jean Despuiols 
from December, 1936, to August, 1938, in 
the regions of Southeast Asia now known as 
North and South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. 

Despujols, on a tour sponsored by a 



French art institute, painted the peoples 
and scenes of the regions shortly before the 
outbreak of the wars which have swept 
Southeast Asia during the middle 20th cen- 
tury. The view of life he captured has 
been immeasurably altered now, making his 
works some of the last recordings of life 
in a peaceful Indochina. 

Despujols left his native France when 
World War II broke out, and during a "drif- 
ting tour" of the United States while he 
waited out the war, he visited friends in 
Shreveport. The artist took up residence 
here, occupying a position of prominence 
in cultural circles until his death in 
1965. 

His Indochina paintings were kept in 
a local bank vault until Meadows purchased 
them from the Despujols heirs. 

The 25-piece exhibit opening Sunday will 
be the third showing of works in the col- 
lection since it was given to Centenary. 

Oil paintings, drawings, ink and water 
color paintings, gouaches and washes will

Harlem Globetrotters 

The fabled Harlem Globetrotters will 
return to the Hirsch Coliseum Thursday, 
Feb. 17, to put on their laugh-filled 
basketball entertainment program that's 
been witnessed by 68,000,000 fans in 87 
countries during the past 45 years. 

The famed "Magicians of Basketball" 
will meet the Boston Shamrocks (which team 
hasn't posted much of a winning record 
against the 'Trotters) in the feature of 
a giant-sized program starting at 7:30 p. m. 

Among the many stellar personalities 
who will return with the team will be Meadow- 
lark Lemon, the renowned court jester of 
the cage sport . 

Tickets for the show are priced at $3.50 
and $4.00 for reserved seats and' $3.00 
for general admission. 

be shown in the current display. The 
works to be shown represent seven regions 
of Southeast Asia- -Angkor, the Gulf of 
Siam, the Cordillera, Vietnam, Laos, the 
upper Tonkin and Nam-Te--and the Hawaiian 
Islands. 

The exhibit will remain on display in 
the Centenary Library through Feb. 25. 




The Public Be Damned 



Railroader William H. Vanderbilt made 
the phrase famous, and the thought is 
still with us. The public is all too of- 
ten considered a nuisance, a stumbling 
block, an obstruction in the path of "prog- 
ress." Proof that the attitude still 
exists is the recently disclosed decision 
of officials in the Nixon Administration 
not to hold public hearings on the fort' 
coming environmental impact on the proposed 
trans -Alaska oil pipeline- -one of the most 
controversial engineering projects in his- 
tory. 

The reason? Obviously, oil companies 
with big investments in Alaska's North 
Slope oil fields --and with pipe already 
delivered from Japan- -are in a hurry to 
start cashing in. And unfortunately, 
money plus the political clout that goes 
with it often speaks louder than reason, 
prudence, common sense or the cause of 
the environment. 

Yet there is just a chance that Presi- 
dent Nixon will reverse this decision 
and require that public hearings be held. 
Evidence of this: a recent White House 
letter said conservationists will be notified 
if there is a change of mind. Hence, a plea 
to conservationists everywhere has been sent 
out by the Wilderness Society of Washington, 
D.C.: Write or wire the President today. 
THE PRESIDENT TODAY. 

Hearings were held a year ago on a so- 
called "draft environmental impact state- 
ment" on the proposed 789 -mile trans - 
Alaska oil pipeline. But that statement 
proved so inadequate, with so many questions 
left unanswered, that Secretary of the In- 
terior Rogers C. B. Morton ordered a whole 
new study on the project. The resulting 
environmental impact statement, about to 
be made public, will reveal significant 
revisions in the pipeline plans. These 
deserve full public discussion. 

But Secretary Morton recently said he 
expected the project to be approved 
two weeks after the impact statement is 
published, without public hearings . 

Why Hearings Are A Must 

The proposed Alaska pipeline is one of 
the most ambitious --and environmentally 
menacing- -construction projects ever con- 
ceived. The four- foot -diameter pipe is 
supposed to carry two million barrels of 
hot crude oil daily from the edge of 
the Arctic ocean to the Gulf of Alaska, 
far to the south, for transfer to tankers. 

To transport this huge, hot river of 
black oil, the pipe must cross hundreds 
of miles of frozen, easily-thawed, treach- 
erous arctic and subarctic terrain- -much 
of it mountainous, much of it unstable. 
An earthquake might cause a break which 
would disgorge hot oil into any of several 
hundred unspoiled rivers and streams. 
Thawing action of the hot pipe on the per- 
mafrost could cause the same kind of disas- 
ter. 

Building the pipeline also would mean 
breaching virtually untouched wilderness 
..lth massive bulldozing, road construc- 
tion, gTavel excavation and other opera- 
tions having severe impact on one of the 
vorld's most fragile environments. 

Similarly, ocean transport of oil 
from the Gulf of Alaska to lower United 
States ports poses grave problems. A 
spill in Prince William Sound (at the 
pipeline terminus) , along the Alaska 
and Canadian coast or in Puget Sound 
would pollute some of the most productive 
marine habitats in the world, threat- 
ening birds, fish and other valuable

No transport undertaking in history 
has been fraught with more technological 
and ecological uncertainty, or more hazard 
to the environment. 



What You Can Do 

The White House has left the door open-- 
a crack! Thus, if enough citizens demand 
hearings, the President may well respond. 
It is vital, therefore, that everyone with 
concern about our environment and the fu- 
ture of Alaska act at once in the following 
ways: 

(1) You can write or wire President 
Nixon at the White House, Washington, D. C. 
20500, urging him to order public hearings 
on the revised environmental impact state- 
ment. And ask him to defer any decision 
on the pipeline project for at least 60 
days after it is made public to permit 
full public disclosure and comment. 

(2) Write or wire your members of Con- 
gress urging them to make their views 
known to the President in this important 
matter. 

(3) Interest your neighbors and friends 
in writing the President. Get your own 
conservation organizations and other citi- 
zen's groups (social, business, religious, 
fraternal) to take action through their 
members . 

Hearings on the pipeline environmental 
impact statement are being urged by numer- 
ous organizations including: Defenders 
of Wildlife, Environmental Action, Envi- 
ronmental Defense Fund, Federation of Wes- 
tern Outdoor Clubs, Friends of the Earth, 
National Audubon Society, Sierra Club, 
Sport Fishing Institute, The Conservation 
Foundation, The Wilderness Society, Trout 
Unlimited and Zero Population Growth.

Ancient Man Had Enviro 



By Wayne Hanson 

'Tor some four million years, from the 
earliest hominids to contemporary man, one 
human characteristic has remained unchanged 
and invariable- -we have always produced gar- 
bage and litter," says Dr. Arthur Broughy, 
biologist at University of California- 
Irvine. 

Social historians have called attention 
to the fact that air pollution choked Lon- 
doners in the 14th century and mercury 
poisoned Italians in the 18th century. They 
tell of urban congestion in ancient Baby- 
lon, of man depleting the forests of 16th 
century Europe, of entire species of ani- 
mals being destroyed long before the tech- 
nological onslaughts of the 20th century. 

So bleak a glance at the problems faced 
by our ancestors is not meant to minimize 
the very real danger we face today. Some 
members of the California State Environ- 
mental Study Council have warned that "pos- 
terity will inherit a vast wasteland in 
California." 

This warning may be equally as true for 
other parts of our country and segments of 
our society. American cities, for example, 
may, indeed, ultimately become unlivable, 
as many ecologists continually warn us. 
Would-be city dwellers of the future may, 
indeed, be unable to breathe the air or 
drink the water, drive their cars or walk 
on their streets. The threat which we 
face is a very real one. 

There is no longer any need to question 
whether or not a threat exists. There is 
no longer any need to wonder if something 
should be done. We have to do something 
and we must begin doing it now. But when 
one assumes, as many of the ecologists do, 
that the problem just began in the 1960 's,' 
there is a risk of panic.

Re dWOOdSIColor Them Gone 



By Ron Eber 
Long before man, long even before the 
first pre-humans, there was the redwood 
forest. One hundred million years ago 
redwood florished throughout the northern 
half of the world. No other living thing 
in the world grows as tall. Few trees 
live to be as old. The sequoia sempervir- 
ens, the enduring redwood, is a living 
link to the age of the dinosaurs. 

The last great stand of redwoods now 
survives in a narrow band of forest in the 
fog belt along the northern California coast. 
Of the estimated two million acres that 
were growing at the time man first emerged 
up until when logging first began 120 years 
ago, only a small percentage now remains. 

In the 1860 's lumber companies cut down 
1,300 acres of redwood forest a year. In 
the 1960's they cut down 13,000 acres of 
trees a year- -one thousand redwoods a day, 
300,000 redwoods a year, three million trees 
a decade. In 15 years the lunber companies 
will have hardly any more old growth red- 
woods to log. 

The companies who have been doing this 
devastating logging now make up the Cali- 
fornia Redwood Association. In a narrow 
interpretation of private property and 
an arrogant view of the natural environ- 
ment, they are clear-cutting the last of 
the great old growth redwoods. They ad- 
vertise to promote the use of redwood 
shingles, house paneling and patio fur- 
niture to support their profit-making rape 
of the forest. The ad is truthful in the 
sense that redwood is a durable lumber

months in 1948. And in London, with its 
coastal fog and the mists from its sur- 
rounding marshy bogs, air pollution killed 
4000 people in two weeks in 1952. 

Many believe the term "smog" was coined 
in this country, but it actually came from 
London in 1902. London, also, had the first 
air pollution control laws. 

There have been many imaginative and 
ingenious proposals for eradicating smog 
today. These range from using huge fans 
to suck the Los Angeles smog underground or 
blow it out to sea to passing the smoke of 
London through running water to wash out its 
iiiipurities . Another suggested that all the 
chimneys of London be connected to each other 
and the smoke channeled into the sea. 

The first air pollution control ordi- 
nance in America was enacted in St. Louis 
This law required that factory chimneys 
be 20 feet higher than adjacent buildings. 
The theory was that the wind would then 
carry the pollutants out of the city, over 
the heads of the people. 

Like air pollution, water pollution is 
a problem which has long been with us, 
historians say. Sociologist Lewis Mum- 
ford in his book 'The City In History" 
speaks of polluted waterways in medieval 
times, and says the residents of mid-19th 
century Paris, London and Rome poisoned 
themselves with the befouled drinking water 
of their rivers. It is claimed that the 
European cholera epidemics of the 1840's 
and 1850 *s can be traced to polluted rivers. 
All the cities of Europe dumped their waste 
into their rivers and even the least re- 
fined nose could detect that a problem 
existed. When it became recognized that 
cholera resulted from water polluted bv hu- 
man waste and excrement, all major cities 
rapidly installed filter systems and waste 
treatment plants . 

Tn Paae Sine 



and will last for "many tomorrows." How- 
ever, the notion that it will be "here to- 
day, here tomorrow," is misleading. The 
clear-cutting operations of these companies 
are destroying the last major private hol- 
dings of old growth redwood and are caus- 
ing serious damange to those parts of the 
forest already "protected" by the national 
park. 

Last week, for example, bulldozers, 12 
logging rigs, five road graders and one 
water wagon were counted, as loggers chewed 
up the slopes of Redwood Creek, uphill 
from the tall trees corridor of the Red- 
wood National Park. Loaded trucks were 
coming out of Redwood Creek in swarms of 25 
per hour. The lumber companies who won the 
land adjoining the park are racing to pre- 
empt completion of an adequate preserve. 

To fully understand the meaning of the 
all-out devastation of the redwoods, one 
must look back to Oct. 2, 1968, when Congress 
passed the Redwood National Park Act, cul- 
minating over a century of conservationist 
efforts to preserve one of the nation's 
most magnificent scenic resources . The 
Act represented a clear recognition by 
Congress of the urgent need to establish a 
federal reserve of the coastal redwoods 
while there were still uncut forests worthy 
of National Park status, for the redwoods 
had been logged steadily for over a cen- 
tury and logging was continuing. Pro- 
bably no other National Park effort has 
engendered more public support. The deep 
concern of both Congress and the people 
was expressed in the Park itself--an un- 
precedented measure which authorized over 
$92 million to purchase the property for 
the Park. 

Nonetheless, the Act was of necessity 
a compromise. Conservationists originally 
asked for the inclusion of some 90,000 
acres in the National Park. However, eco- 
nomics prevailed and only some 22,000 
acres near the confluence of Prairie Creek 
and Redwood Creek were included in the Park, 
together with a strip seven miles long and 
a half-mile wide along Redwood Creek, where 
the world's tallest trees now grow. The 
Park also includes lands farther north, for 
a total of 58,000 acres, including 28,000 
in previously existing state parks. 

The results of the compromise are now 
evident. A short three years after esta- 
blishment of the Park, the redwoods face 
a life-or-death crisis. Major clearcutting 
operations are occurring 12 hours a day, 
six days a week, on industry- owned land' 
above Redwood Creek. On the periphery of 
the Park, immediately upstream and uphill 
from the Park, and in some cases right down 
to its boundaries. California's precious 
giant redwoods are being relentlessly struck 
down by the most hideous and destructive 
logging operations know to man. This is 
legislation by chainsaw and totally pre- 
empts the Congress , the Secretary of the 
Interior and the people from even getting 
a chance to save the redwoods . 

Areata National Corporation and Simpson 
Timber Company presently log about 3,000 
acres a year in the Redwood Creek drainage, 
and Georgia-Pacific Corporation clears 
about 600 acres a year. In certain in- 
stances, the clearcutting began close 
to the Park boundary only after the Park was 
established. Skunk Cabbage Creek, for exam- 
ple, supports one of the finest and hea 
est stands of redwoods in the world, and 
has been the victim of extensive clear- 
cutting by Areata. The Sierra Club has con- 
sistent asked that the Skunk Cabbage Creek 
drainage be included within the Park's 
boundaries, only to fnve its pleas ig- 
nored by the Secretai, of Interior. Simi- 
larly, the Cliib has requested that Bridge 
Creek's fragile watershed and the Elam-

THE CONGLOMERATE

Bernstein Mass 

"Mass"- -A Theatre Piece for Singers, Play- 
ers, and Dancers 

This electrifying piece, commissioned by 
Mrs. Jacqueline Onnasis for the John F. 
Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 
has been called Leonard Bernstein's great- 
est work. 

Bernstein, who is Jewish, states that 
the work is not a Mass per se--it could 
not be performed in a church. It is a 
combination of the Roman liturgy with 
flashes from the congregation as their 
minds wander during the repetitious forms . 

The celebrant is an amazing 24 -year- 
old long-hair named Alan Titus, whose 
voice is lyric enough for the opening 
"A Simple Song," yet dramatic enough for 
the enraged "Fraction." 

Titus, dressed in jeans and a work 
shirt, is invested by young boys for his 
part in the Mass. The several choirs are 
in ldbrant colors, and the "congrega- 
tion" is in clothes of freaks, swingers, 
straights, soul, and everything in be- 
tween. 

The traditional Kyries, Glorias, and 
Agnuses (Agni?) are interrupted by blues, 
acid rock, and screams as the Mass pro- 
gresses. The altar is at the top of a 
spiral staircase which the celebrant 
slowly ascends during the performance. 

.As the people begin to show their dis- 
content with the place of God in today's 
world ("I believe in God, but does God 
believe in me?") , the celebrant picks up 
their cry of "Dona nobis pacem" (Give us 
peace --NOW!). 

When he reaches the altar, he crashes 
the chalice and monstrance to the floor in 
disenchantment, and rips off the altar 
cloths and his vestments and throws them 
at the crowds below in rage. There is ut- 
ter chaos on the stage as the orchestra, 
rock band, and actors race around in hys- 
teria, screaming for peace. 

Finally the crowd is exhausted and lying 
on the stage (the celebrant has left) . In 
the silence a young boy begins to sing a 
simple, child- like song first introduced in 
the beginning by the guitared celebrant 
before the Mass began. 



The crowd picks up the spirit of hope 
and begins embracing each other and giving 
the ancient Passing of the Peace to the 
choir boys, who, in turn, distribute it to 
the audience in the auditorium. The cele- 
brant returns with'the little boy's hope, 
and quadraphic speakers in the au 
torium's corners seal the Mass in the 
traditional way with Bernstein's voice 
saying, "The Mass is ended. Go in peace." 

This work, which moved Bernstein to 
tears at its premiere, was recorded by 
Columbia on two disks, and includes a mar- 
vellous color- illustrated libretto for easy 
following of the Latin sections. When you 
listen to it, be sure you're seated- -you 
may find your emotions surfacing. 

By Pinky Roberts 
T. Rex 



The band sits up there on the stage, 
and the guitarist smiles thinly as waves 
and waves of jellybeans thrown by admiring 
fans fall through the air. In a minute, 
they'll have to go through the same old 
thing with the limousine --the girls will be 
out there, and they'll have to try to plow 
their way through the jrowd, careful not 
to hit the girl who has thrown herself in- 
to the path of the car in the hopes they 
will pay some attention to here. 

If all this sounds like 1964 to you, 
let me tell you right now that it's 1972, 
ana it's England. "I've never seen anything 
like it, except maybe the Beatles," says a 
promoter. "I rather enjoy it, but it is 
a strain, I must admit," says the guitarist, 
diminutive Marc Bolan. Marc was one of the 
first of the London Mods, back when they 
were still battling the rocers, and even 
though he was only twelve years old, he was 
still a fully enfranchised member of the 
Mod movement, if it really could be called 
that.

Child's Play at Port 



By Merlin Fahey 



Port Players, one of Shreveport's com- 
munity theatres, recently invited Mr. Rob- 
ert Buseick over to direct a production, 
Child's Play , by Robert Maraseo. Port, 
in attempting to improve its facilities and 
quality of production, was wise in asking 
Mr. B. 

The play is a discussion of personal in- 
fluences in the educational functions of 
a prep school for boys. The mystery is 
the "malevolence" which occurs ; the solu- 
tion is hard-drawn and makes an exci- 
ting last couple of minutes in the show. 
This "Malevolence" is the combined pay dues 
of all attending the school, with the major 
guide or spirit for "all this hate" being 
the one man who had taught there the longest; 
well before anyone else (twice fifteen years) 
His ambition to gain power, security, and 
identity through "his boys" is the literal 
force which destroys both him and the 
school. We have all experienced this type 
of situation. At least I have. 

The set was designed by C. L. (Kip) 
Holloway and executed by many of our stu- 
dents during their Interim holiday. The 
set showed sensitivity for the building 
and the script, and functioned well for 
Mr. Buseick 's purposes. 

The characters were well played and 
directed with a subtleness an experienced 
audience member enjoys. Kip, as Reese, 
went up a notch in everyone's eyes when 
he played the sensitive, vital, and very 
real role of, of all things, a coach-tea- 
cher-ex-student. Type Casting, you say? 
Not at all; a demanding role which forced 



him to look outside himself to perform as 
he did. The other cast members, such as 
John Hargraves and Wes Collins, could not 
have been excelled. Steve Murray, an ex- 
Centenary student, did an admirable job 
encompassing his natural verbal tendency 
into his role. 

Child's Play , as a discussion of 
influences , reveals an inadequate and un- 
balanced collections of characters which 
cause extreme actions, including ritual 
murders , is an attempt to purify the 
minds of those involved. There were con- 
stant references to the crucifixion; from 
a boy being hung on the chapel cross to 
Reese intentionally cutting himself. Are 
the boys, Mr. B., the Roman soldiers of 
.old trying to find the solution themselves 
without the aid of Pilate? Was life so 
twisted and infringed upon by "evil" that 
normal functions of the institution began 
to maim or kill the mind and body, while 
still being excused as games? Are chil- 
dren the basic consciousness of us all, 
so that when they don't survive intact the 
whole structure is doomed? 

R. Buseick 's production made me ask 
these questions and more. That I have been 
made to think so hard is my suggestion 
that the production is the best to appear 
in Shreveport for a long time. Having 
to assay my tutor is difficult, by my at- 
titude is one of respect and trust, for 
it is evident that this man can offer me 
as a student, and to Centenary as an in- 
tellectual body, a far greater set of ex- 
periences than mere child's play. 



A couple of years and many thousands, 
mikes later, he was half of a neo-folkie 
group called Tyrannosaurus Rex, which 
sounded rather too uncomfortably like the 
Incredible Strong Band. But Marc still 
had worlds to conquer, and he had a falling 
out with the other guy in the band, Steve 
Peregrine Took, who left for parts unknown. 
Before long, he'd found another partner to 
play drums, bought an electric guitar, 
learned how to play basic rock on it, and 
shortened the group's name to T. Rex. And 
nine months later, there they were, up on 
that stage, watching a deja vu movie in 
which they starred. 

Everybody seems to be at a loss to ex- 
plain the T. Rex phenomenon, and to tell 
the truth, most people couldn't care less 
why it's happening- -they 're just glad it's 
Happening at all. It's been a long time 
since a band came along that the young kids 
could get off on, which spoke to something 
that their older brothers and sisters had 
either forgotten or given up on, and which 
created this kind of a stir. If you listen 
to their latest, Electric warrior (Reprise 
6466) , you may be puzzledi by what the big 
fuss is about, but you will certainly have 
to agree that in their own strange way 
T. Rex really have something. 

The lyrics are odd combinations of oc- 
cult and mythical imager)' and straight-out 
baby -I -want -you rock and roll, and to hear 
Bolan's buzz-saw voice singing them is 
really an experience. I have yet to see 
them in person^ and I understand that's 
what everybody's so excited about, so I'll 
just have to conclude for now that T. Rex, 
at least on record, are an acquired taste, 
but one that more and more people seem to 
be acquiring.

Mc Cartney 



Yes , Virginia , the new album by those 
two fab lovebirds the McCartneys is just 
as awful as you think it is. wings (Apple 
SW 3386) is the name of their new group, 
which includes, as I'm sure you've heard 
by now, ex-Moody Bluesman Denny Laine, 
and drummer Denny Seiwell. If you can 
sit through "Bip Bop," you can sit through 
anything, and now maybe people will stop 
giving me those funny looks when I tell 
them that I rather enjoyed ram. Wings has 
announced that they're going to start showing 
up at small clubs in England unannounced, 
set up, and play. Maybe when they get 
booed off stage, they'll start getting it 
together a bit better

The most extravagant non-opera record 
package I've ever seen is the 4-record 
Chicago set that came out just in time for

some old songs they've never done before, 
a huge poster of the group, a color book-

since 1967, a vintage shot of Carnegie Hall, 
and a sheet detailing voter registration 
information for all fifty states in the 
hopes that they can get more of their

THE CON'GLOf.ERATE 



HANSON From p a9e Six 

Water pollution and waste disposal are 
two problems that go hand- in-hand and in 
many instances they become a real problem 
because of the sheer volume of waste. 
Where do you put the waste generated ev- 
ery day by 200 million Americans who are 
living in a throw-away generation? His- 
torians say that the health hazards posed 
by waste in earlier generations were far 
greater than today in spite of the increased 
amount of waste. 

Water and air are not the only natural 
resources contaminated or destroyed in the 
name of progress. The denuding of gTeat 
forests is an obvious target of the eco- 
logists of 1972. But historians tell us 
the practice was common in ancient Russia 
and China. There was a severe depletion 
of the forests in Europe for mining opera- 
tions from about 1500 on. 

Man's treatment of the land itself has 
been even shabbier than his treatment of 
the trees that the soil nourishes . A prime 
example is the overcultivation of the Texas - 
Oklahoma Panhandle to provide grain during 
World War I and which lead directly to the 
dust bowl conditions of the mid 1930's. 

The term "ecology" was first used in 
1876. And, undoubtedly, the overwhelming 
difference between pollution then and now 
is one of degree. 

Rachel Carson was among the first voices 
crying out in the ecological wilderness. 
She warmed in her book "Silent Spring" of 
"a new kind of havoc ... the most alar- 
ming of all man's assaults upon the environ 
ment . . . the contamination of air, earth, 
rivers, and sea with dangerous and even 
lethal materials." 

Mrs. Carson asked at the time, "Will 
the public become sufficiently aware of 
the facts to demand action?" The answer 
was then a resounding NO. 

Very little was done until Jan., 1969, 
when there was a huge oil spill at Santa 
Barbara. The public finally became sensi- 
tized and ecology, as a mass movement, was 
bom in the oil slide waters and polluted 
beaches of the Santa Barbara Channel . 



REDWOODS From p &9e Seven 

McArthur Creek areas be added to the Park. 
Its petitions have been ignored time after 
time, and the results have been disastrous. 

Much of the Park's potential has already 
been destroyed, for the effect of clear- 
cutting can be compared to the devastation 
of strip mining in West Virginia. Over 80 
percent of the surface in the logged areas 
is distrubed, at some places with earth 
cuts 20 to 30 feet deep and wide. As the 
areas on the preiphery of the Park and up- 
hill and upstream from the Park are denuded 
soil will erode at an ever increasingly 
high rate. From time to time, there will 
be soil slippages and, on the steeper 
slopes, avalanches. The creeks will 
earn- mud flows into the Park, filling 
streams, creating alluvial fans, burying 
the roots of the redwoods and resulting 
in the eventual destruction of many of the 
giants. 

The purpose of Redwood National Park, 
as stated by the Congress, is "to pre- 
serve significant examples of the primeval 
coastal redwood forests and streams and 
seashores with which they are associated 
for purposes of public inspiration, enjoy- 
ment and scientific study." Obviously, 
if the redwoods are destroyed by logging, 
none of these three purposes will be ac- 
commodated . 

On September 24, the Sierra Club peti- 
tioned Secretary of Interior Rogers Morton 
to take an easement to defer cutting for 
two vears on 4", 000 acres of Redwood Creek, 
adjacent to the Park. The Club also re- 
quested Morton to undertake an immediate 
study of these areas, so that Congress 
could have the time and knowledge to de- 
cide whether mere land should be included 
in the Park. Under the provisions of the 
Redwood National Park Act, the Secretary 
of Interior has both the duty and the au- 
thority to acquire those lands and in- 
terests in land outside the Park necessary 
to protect land inside the Park from in- 
jury. In three years, three secretaries 
have not used that power, despite pleas

THE I NEW 
ALCHEMY 

SAUL-PAUL SIR AG 

FEATURES SERVICE 



THE CLONES ARE COMING 

We are at the point in human history where 
man can re-create himself, and more ama- 
zingly we are almost at the point where an 
individual man can re-create himself. In 
saving this, I am referring to human en- 
gineering by genetic manipulation. One of 
the most dramatic ways of doing this is 
through clonal reproduction. (Clone comes 
from "colony from one.") A great deal of 
the terror and glory of the future will un- 
doubtedly involve cloning. 

Ever since 1953 when Crick and Watson 
described the double helix model of the DMA 
(deoxyribonucleic acid) molecule and showed 
how it could account for the passing of 
genetic information from cell to cell, people 
have wondered if each cell in an individual 
body contains a copy of the whole of the 
genetic "library." 

This question was answered dramatically 
by J. B. Gurdon of Cambridge University in 
1963 in the March edition of the Quarterly 
Review of Biology (and later in Scientific 
American, December 1968), where lie described 
his experiments with the South African 
clawed frog, zenopus laevis. Gurden had 
taken an unfertilized frog egg and destroyed 
its nucleus by ultraviolet radiation. Then 
using a micropipette, he took the nucleus 
from a cell in the intestinal skin and placed 
it into the enucleated egg. This egg with 
its skin cell nucleus (in 12 out of 700 
tries) then grew into a whole new frog havinc 
identical genetic material to the frog from 
which the intestinal skin nucleus was taken. 
Such a duplicate organism is called a clone. 

Similar experiments have been done with 
other amphibians and more recently with mice. 
In the future it will be possible to do the 
same with man. So is "Brave New World" upon 
us° Like all other advances in knowledge, 
cloning can be used for good or evil. 
can easily imagine a government or agency 
growing multiple copies of a particularly sub- 
servient individual, and further, a kind of 
war of the clones, etc. 

Remember that each cell has a full comple- 
ment of genetic material. What makes one 
cell different from another is that different 
segments of the DMA (i. e. different genes) 
are turned on or off. Genes are turned on 
and off by certain enzymes about which know- 
ledge is growing rapidly. 

Tissue culture techniques, too, are quite 
advanced now. Boris Ephrisi and Mary ('. 
in Scientific American, April, 1969, describe 
i tissue culture that is a hybrid of man and 
nouse cells. They are doing this to map 
where particular genes are along the DNA 
strand, and how cells differentiate and how 
genes are repressed or turned on. Soon it 
will be possible to: grow a tissue culture 
of a human individual's cells (say his skin 
cells); turn off certain genes; turn on cer- 
tain genes; add certain hormones; and then 
quite rapidly grow a particular kind of tis- 
sue or even an organ- -say a heart. 

This heart would be genetically the same 
as the heart of a person who donated the 
skin cells, and it could replace his heart 
with no rejection by his immune system. 
Such organs could be kept in cold storage, 
since organ freezing (and whole bodv freez- 
ing) techniques are developing rapidlv. 
If a person's heart has a genetic defec - 
will be possible to genetically manipulate th< 
cells in the tissue culture so as to cor- 
rect this defect. This argument extends to 
the whole body. Cloning mav one dav be used 
to extend life. 

Paul Segall, a biology graduate student, whe 
is an irrepressible immoral is t , suggests that 
it may be possible to grow an (unconscious) 
whole body clone, and keep it in cold storage 
And then if sufficient sophisticated tech- 
niques are developed, it may be possible to 
transfer information from one's brain to the 
brain of a clone. So the body becomes a 
kind of garment for the information content 
of the brain (the soul if you like). The 
transfer of information may be by computer or 
may be direct. If computer technology and 
parapsychology and brain physiology can get 
together. . . you can write your own science 
fiction story.

Gents To Seek Revenge 
As They Host N.O. Teams 



Revenge will be on the minds 
of the Centenary Ger.ts tomor- 
row night and Monday as they be- 
gin a 4-game homestand which 
will close out their Dome sche- 
dule. Tomorrow night, they will 
host Loyola, and then on Monday, 
LSUNO will come to the Dome . 
The home schedule will be con- 
cluded with games against Hous- 
ton on the 17th and Texas -Ar- 
lington on the 21st. 

In the two upcoming games, 
the Gents will be trying to de- 
feat the two teams which beat 
them on their recent New Or- 
leans trip. In Loyola tomor- 
row night, the Gents will be 
facing a team which beat them 
earlier 104-93. 6 '7" Ernie 
Losch led the Wolfpack in that 
victory as he scored 32 points , 
mostly on hooks and jumpers 
from close range. Other stand- 
out players for Loyola should 
be 6' 8" Charlie Jones and 6' 2" 
Tim Schneider. 

On Monday night, the Gents 
will be hosting the LSUNO Pri- 
vateers who defeated the Gents 
83-75. In that game Melvin 
Henderson led the Privateers 
attack with 27 points. Lea- 
ding scorer "Hawk" Hamilton and 
C. B. Gordon are other Priva- 
teer stand-outs. 

Next Thursday's game with 
the Houston Cougars will be a 
rematch of last night's game 
in Houston. The Cougars, ra- 
ted highly in pre -season na- 
tional polls, started slowly, 
but have bee n winning l ately. 

I i i 



The Cougars are led by 6 '7" 
Dwight Davis and by 6'10" Dwight 
Jones . 

Before last night's game with 
Houston, the Gents had won 
six of their last eight games, 
and had been getting good per- 
formances from several players. 
Besides Larry Davis and Mel- 
vin Russell who have been stand- 
outs most of the season, John 
Hickerson, "Skeeter" Home, 
"Roadrunner" Home, and Dave 
Deets have come up with fine 
performances in recent games. 
Davis, who has led the Gents 
in scoring and rebounding most 
of the season, also leads the 
team in field goal percentage. 
In the recent surge, he hit 
for 26 points against Loyola 
and 24 in last Saturday's game 
at Southern Mississippi. Rus- 
sell quarterbacks the Gents 
on both ends of the court and 
leads the Gents in assists. 
Co-Captain Hickerson came off 
the bench to spark the Gents 
in their victory over North- 
western. "Skeeter" Home has 
been another key in the re- 
cent surge. After a slow start, 
he is now averaging over 13 
points and 8 rebounds a game. 
Since he became eligible in 
January, "Skeeter 's" cousin, 
"Roadrunner" Home has become 
a Gent mainstay with his driving 
lay-ups and passes. He hit for 
16 points in the Gents big vic- 
tory over Long Island. Sopho- 
more Dave Deets has also done a 
good job of coming off the

Games This Week Put Frosh 
Dome Record in Jeopardy 



The Centenary Gent lets- who 
had a 16-3 record going into 
last night's game in Houston 
against the UH Kittens, will 
have two tough home games 
during the next week. Tomor- 
row night, they host the Apa- 
ches of Tyler Junior College 
and then next Thursday the 
UH Kittens will arrive for a 
rematch of last night's game. 
So far the Gentlets are 11-0 
in the Dome this year, but 
this record could be very much 
in question in these games. 
Tyler gave the Gentlets 
their worst defeat of the sea- 
son last month in Tyler, 107- 
87, and had a 16-4 record at 
the beginning of this week's 
activities. This week they have 
moved ahead of Kilgore into the 
lead in the Texas Eastern Con- 
ference. The Apaches, coached 
by Floyd Wagstaff, the winning - 
est junior college coach in 
the nation, are led by for- 
wards Tyrone Johnson and Jerry 
Ahart and guards Jack James 
and Lester Weaver. 

The Houston Kittens have 
not lived up to their pre- 
season billing but have the 
potential to beat anyone if 
they put it all together. They 
are paced by Louis Dunbar from 
Minden Webster and Maurice Pres- 
ley from Houston Jeff Davis. 

The Gentlets, who survived 
a tight ball game at Grambling 
last Saturday, continue to have 
a well-balanced attack. Sen- 
sational Leon Johnston tops the 
Gentlets, averaging almost 27 
points and 15 rebounds a game. 
6 '5" Jerry Waugh, who missed 
the first month of the season, 
is averaging over 16 points and 
12 rebounds a game as well as 
being the top Gent let shooter

from the floor, hitting on 60% 
of his attempts . Stan Welker 
and Rick Jacobs are also aver- 
aging over 16 points a game. 
Stan has been instrumental in 
the success of the Gentlet fast 
break as well as hitting 52% 
of his floor attempts . Jacobs , 
a leading Gentlet rebounder, is 
also an outside threat. Fred 
Niebrugge, perhaps the most con- 
sistent Gentlet, is averaging 
over 12 points and just under 
10 rebounds a game. He also is 
a leading Gentlet in assists. 
Sixth-man Dale Kinkelaar has 
also contributed to the Gent- 
let success on a number of oc- 
cassions and is averaging al- 
most 10 points a game. Bill 
Bergmann has also come off the 
bench to spark the Gentlets oc- 
casionally. 

These Gentlet statistics are 
quite impressive, but it will 
take more than statistics if 
they are to maintain their un- 
beaten Dome record during the 
games of the next week. 

Gents Down Airmen 
To Capture Title 

The Centenary soccer team 
raced by Barksdale A. F. B. 
Monday night, 4-1, to win the 
championship of the Northwest 
Louisiana Soccer League with a 
perfect 7-0 slate. On a mud- 
dy field on this clear, cold 
night, the Gents jumped to an 
early lead and were never se- 
riously threatened. 

Hubert Van Uecke got the 
game started right for the 
Gents by scoring the game's 
first goal only about 2 mi- 
nutes into the contest. Artie 
Geary kicked in two more first - 
half goals to give the Gents 
a 3-0 half-time lead. On 
the first he received a free- 
kick pass from Chris Carey, 
and on the second he re- 
ceived a pass from Parvis 
Assi, who had outmaneuvered 
two defenders around mid- 
field. 

Barksdale cut the lead to 
3-1 early in the second half, 
but Assi scored on a free- 
kick from 12 yards out which 
sliced by the Barksdale goalie. 
Barksdale made several more 
assaults on the Centenarv 
goal, but they could not slip 
anymore scores past Gent goalies, 
Moussa Sbaita and Eric Swit- 
zer. The victory was largely 
a result of a fine team effort 
by the Gents who were coached 
and led by Jo«;e Cisneros.

So far, twenty-six seniors from both 
Captain Shreve and Byrd high schools have 
signed up for Dr. Morgan's "Junior Fellows" 
program. Of the seven that registered 
last year only one decided to stay at Cen- 
tenary. It might also be of interest to 
know that twenty-five Shreveport-Bossier 
residents decided to take advantage of 
the special Audit-Participation program 
offered this spring. 

President Allen was in New Orleans 
last week attending a meeting of the 
Presidents of Institutions of Private 
Higher Education in Louisiana. 

Mrs. Ella Edwards, the Cataloguing As- 
sistant at the Library, is participating in 
a four-week librarian exchange program with 
the Joint Universities Library at Vander- 
bilt University in Nashville, Term. Mrs. 
Edwards will be at J. U. L. from Jan. 24 
through Feb. 18. She is working specifi- 
cally in the Acquisitions Department, 
but her program is flexible so as to pro- 
vide a good survey of the operations of 
J. U. L. as well as the other libraries 
in the Nashville ar?a. She reports heavy 
use of computers and strong impression of 
the immense size of J. U. L. Mrs. Ed- 
wards ' exchange program has been arranged 
through the Southern College-University 
Union as a part of Centenary's participa- 
tion in this academic consortium based 
on Vanderbilt University.

Peanut Butter Bread 

Before we hear any snickers (from the 
non-peanut-butter gallery) remember, pea- 
nut butter is an important source of pro- 
tein and can be used as a meat substitute- - 
valuable information if you are contemplating 
vegetarians im, and nice to know even if you 
aren't. Here's the how-to for this par- 
ticular peanut-butter concoction: 

Sift into mixing bowl: 
1 1/2 cups whole -wheat pastry flour 
1/3 cup powdered milk 

1 teaspoon salt 

2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder 

Blend, using a pastry cutter: 
3/4 cup natural peanut butter 

Add: 
1 1/4 cups sweet or sour milk, buttermilk 

or yogurt 
1/3 cup honey or dark molasses 
1/2 cup wheat germ 

Stir with no more than 40 strokes. 
Line bottom of loaf pan with heavy paper 
and grease well; pour batter into pan, 
forcing it into comers ; make indentation 
lengthwise through center. Bake at 350°F. 
for 45 minutes .

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A 
POLITICAL FOOTBALL 



by John Wafer 

If you were watching tele- 
vision on the evening of Jan. 14 
of this year, chances are that 
you were not watching the Fran- 
cois Truffaut film 'Jules and 
Jim." If you were watching tele- 
vision in Shreveport on that 
night, it is absolutely certain 
that you did not see the film. 
Why? Because that film and sev- 
eral others like it, including 
Fritz Lang's "M" and Alfred 
Hitchcock's "The 39 Steps" are 
being shown on the Public Broad- 
casting Service network, and 
there is no TV in the city that 
can pick it up, nor is there like- 
ly to be in the near future un- 
less an incredible case of con- 
fusion, bamboo zlery, and inef- 
ficiency can be cleared up by 
or for the Shreveport City Coun- 
cil so that cable television can 
be introduced into the area. 

Cable TV, for those who 
arc unfamiliar with the term, 
is a system by which television 
is sent to individual sets not 
through the air, as is the case 
with conventional TV, but through 
cables, which are installed in 
the homes of those who pay for 
the service, much like any 
other utility. There is usually 
a service charge for this in- 

11 at ion, and a regular month- 
ly charge for continuation of the 

vvice. It is not automat i 
you must subscribe to the firm 
which owns the cable. Despite 
the charge , the advantages of 
such a system are tremendous , 



for it enables one to pick up 
not only the three regular net- 
works, but a vast assortment of 
different types of channels, 
ranging from educational chan- 
nels to a 24-hour news channel, 
as well as a channel designed to 
allow the citizens to present 
their own shows and announce- 
ments. The possibilities are 

A tale of spirited discussions 




and closed door sessions 



virtually endless. Unfortu- 
nately, so are the possibilities 
for profit for the cable owner, 
and thus the source of all the 
trouble. Everyone wants it, 
and no one can seem to decide 
who should be the lucky one. 
It started just under 
two years ago, when an ordinance 



stipulating what would be re- 
quired of a cable TV company in 
Shreveport in the way of pro- 
graming and costs. Several 
cable television companies 
began trying to meet the require- 
ments , but for some eighteen 
months, little or no action was 
taken and the question did not 
come up for further study until 
Dec. of 1971. 

On Dec. 28, the City Coun- 
cil awarded the franchise to LVO 
Cable Inc. of Tulsa, Oklahoma, 
a subsidiary of an Oklahoma oil 
firm, and has as its local stock- 
holders Charleton H. Lyons Sr., 
William C. Rasberry, Charles T. 
McCord and J. E. Fowler, all 
very wealthy men, in an ordi- 
nance sponsored by Commissioner 
of Utilities Bill Collins, over 
the protests of Mayor Calhoun 
Allen and Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Safety George D'Artois. 
Under the terms of the ordinance, 
the city will receive a $100,000 
franchise fee plus whatever in- 
creases, up to 31 of the origi- 
nal amount, are approved by the 
Federal Communications Commis- 
sion. It allows a $19.95 in- 
stallation fee plus a $5.25 
monthly charge for a single 
residence plus an additional $1.00 
for each extra outlet. For 
this price, the consumer will re- 
ceive access to at least 27 
channels : the three regular 
networks , an educational channel 
from either Dallas or New Or- 
leans, two distant independent 
stations as permitted by the FCC,

Cfcitorial 

ON THE FALLOUT LEVEL 

As newspapers report on President Nixon's 
preparations for his trip to Peking, two 
recent news, articles come to mind. 

The first, appearing in the New York Tim es . 
Dec. 6, 1971, states that radioactive fallout 
of levels "too low to constitute any known 
health hazards" were detected in eight west- 
ern states, as a result of a twenty kiloton 
blast at China's Lop Nor test site on Nov. 

The second article, from the Shreveport 
Times, Jan. 23, 1972, reports fallout 'well 
within- acceptable safety limits" in sixteen 
states, including Louisiana, coming from a 
Chinese test on Jan. 7. 

The United States is bound to (and abides 
by) agreements which limit nuclear testing 
to underground areas. Mainland China is not 
party to any such ban. • 

Although skeptical of any Communist Chin- 
ese intentions to further any interests other 
than their own immediate ones, I remain hope- 
ful that the President, a noted wheeler- 
dealer, can pressure them into a test -ban 
agreement with meaningful controls , pre- 
ferably on-site inspection. 

Any agreement would be a major step to- 
ward halting the increase of world radia- 
tion levels. • jtq

DAIELL TAKES ON ECOLOGISTS, 

To the Editor: 

Having read the article on the Alaska 
Pipeline in your last issue, I have come up 
with a solution to the crisis of power vs. 
environment. 

Recruit 1,388,640 ecology lovers. Place 
one every three feet along the proposed path 
of the Pipeline. Give every ecology devo- 
tee a bucket. When the oil comes out of the 
wells from the North Slope, the ecologists 
will then pass it down to the refineries 
in the Continental United States by passing 
the oil from bucket to bucket for the 789 
miles. Pay them nothing; indeed, charge 
them for their buckets. As true lovers of 
the environment and friends of humanity, 
they will be more than willing to make 
this minor sacrifice for Mother Nature. 

To compensate for the slowness and 
smallness of the oil flow thus produced, 
all others willing to identify themselves 
as ecology lovers (a number which by this 
' time should equal the number of those willing 
to admit having voted for Lyndon Johnson) 
would be recruited- -at the same pay scale- - 
to run muscle -powered machines in the back- 
yards °r living rooms of everyone in Ameri-

Hairine thus brought us once again to

all is a pure reactionary.

Editor's Note.- The last sentence of 
Jeff Daiell 's letter in last week's issue 
should have read: "Fortunately for Shreveport, 
Mr. Garvin and his party's robotic followers 
could not produce a clean sweep, and the Re- 
publican Party caught District Five off-Gard." 
He apologize for printing it incorrectly. 

TURNBULL TAKES ON DAIELL. 



To the Editor: 

Undergraduate student Mr. Daiell 's re- 
cent communication to the CONGLOMERATE makes 
some interesting statements with regard to a 
Centenary faculty member- -charges which he 
then proceeds blithely to pass over without 
offering any substatiation thereto. I think 
it would not be out of order to request that 
said student Daiell be requested to, to coin 
a phrase, "Put up or shut up," with regard to 
the allegations . 

Specifically, student Daiell, having been 
at Centenary for a total of 5 1/2 months, 
states that the instructor has 'many times" 
shown that he is a poor loser. What have 
been the 'many" occasions on which this has 
been done? 

Specifically, why is Mr. Edwards' ap- 
proach to government "Hegelian" while Mr 
Johnston's is not, since both admitted during 
the campaign that there was little policy 
difference between them? Apparently the one 
is Hegelian because said instructor supported 
him, while the other is not because he was 
opposed by the instructor. If this is the 
case, the instructor must indeed be a tre- 
mendously effective teacher, to have influ- 
ence all the way to the Governor's Mansion 

More likely, student Daiell is following 
the classic right-wing attitude of "guilt 
by association," that if the instructor, with 
whom student Daiell obviously disagrees sup- 
ports a certain candidate, then the candidate' 
must adhere to all of the instructor's pre- 
cepts . ^ 

Specifically, student Daiell suggests 
by implication that the instructor's analysis 
of the election is off -base. Although he 
never comes right out and says that it is. 
This too is the usual approach of the right- 
wing --never attack an analysis, which would 
require some knowledge of the facts (far 
be it from me to suggest that a renowned philo 
sopher should soil his hands with mundane 
things like facts), rather, attack the ana- 
lyst, thereby attempting to discredit his 
authority to analyze. 

I for one would put more credence in 
the analysis of an "Instructor," as junior- 
college graduate and undergraduate student 
Daiell stresses, with a BA in History and 

Government from a recognized, accredited four- 
year institution plus 60 graduate hours at 
the University of Virginia, than I would that 
of one whose entire political science back- 
ground prior to Centenary consisted of, periiaps 
several courses at the world-famous institu- 
tion of higher learning, Miami -Dade Junior 
College. 

It is interesting to note, in this con- 
text, that the one specific piece of analysis 
that student Daiell attempts is his congratu- 
lations for those Democrats who did not par- 
ticipate in the evil of straight -ticket voting. 
Even a cursory examination of the voting re- 



Republicans elected were elected by persons 
voting the straight Republican ticket. So 
one final question fox student Daiell --is 
voting a straight ticket evil, or is it just 
Democrats who vote this way who are the evil? 

It might not be out of place to suggest 
that it is a good thing for student Daiell 
that there is no resemblance whatever between 
the instructor in his letter and the instruc- 
tor in real life. If the instructor were 
indeed a "poor loser" and "shoddy winner," 
I can see no way that stuaent Daiell could 
graduate from this college with a degree in 
Government. Fortunately for him, however, 
not everyone turns- an honest disagreement 'on 
ideas into a vicious personal vendetta. 
Sincerely yours, 
R. G. Turnbull 
POMEROY SLINGS AT SLANG, 
To the Editor: 

The meaning of the editorial, "Ob- 
scenity," February 4, 1972, becomes clear 
with the reading of Mr. Wafer's, "Harlan 
Ellison Holds Forth." The first paragraph of 
this story contains the solecistic obscenity, 
"for Chrissake." (See: A Dictionary of Slang 
and Unconventional English , Macmillan, 1967. 
for spelling, "Chrisake") This term is a cor- 
ruption of the phrase, "for Christ's sake." 

The phrase, "for Christ's sake," has 
been given meaning for a large part of our cul- 
ture and the Centenary community by its use 
throughout the history of Christendom. 

St. Paul went to the ends of the earth and 
to his death to bring unity and peace in a 
hostile world, for Christ's sake . Wilber- 
force, for Christ's sake , began the battle 
against slavery that ended with its abolition 
in Great Britain, and later in America. Wes- 
ley at great personal sacrifice, gave him- 
self to a ministry to save the oppressed poor 
from being crushed by the industrial revolution, 
for. Christ's sake . For Christ's sake, a Bap- 
tist preacher, Martin Luther Ring, Jr. .opened 



a door te freedom without once violating the 
principles of peace. Those who, for Christ 's 
sake, have healed the sick, fed the hungry, freed 
the slave, lifted up the fallen, visited the 
prisoner, restored sight to the blind, be- 
friended the stranger and the outcast, em- 
braced the lonely, clothed the naked, con- 
stitute an endless line of splendor, enrich- 
ing the lives of the exploited and oppressed 
of the world. When you say that Harlan Ell- 
ison, "has dabbled in script writing for a 
number of different types of TV shows , in- 
cluding, for Chrissake, 'The Flying Nun "• 
this trivial use insults these lives and of- 
fends those who try, however imperfectly 
For the Christian community the name 
Christ symbolizes its greatest human 
values: mercy, forgiveness, peace, truth 
compassion, service, healing, love, justice 
freedom, purpose, obligation, hope. Would ' 
you now take this name and, through vulgar 
use, make it an obscenity? For many ofi

you put in its place? Would you give your 
life to invest some new work with these 
meanings? se 

Has Christ done some wrong to Mr Wafer

justified? Have Christians attacked you

offend them in a manner that hurts them

unspeakable wrongs? How cruel, to take the 
name in which the Christian deposits all

tising posters had been sent out to the area 
high schools . 

Dean Miller was asked to report on the 
progress being made in regards to the gener- 
al upkeep and maintenance of the campus , es - 
pecially the dorms. He commented to the 
effect that his office is acutely aware of 
the numerous problems involved, but that 
he would prefer not to comment more speci- 
fically pending a meeting of the Board's 
Executive Council next Tuesday. He said 
that he would have a report ready to pre- 
sent in two weeks . 

Members of the che,er leading team were 
next to appear before the Senate. It was 
explained that Athletic Department Direc- 
tor Orvis Sigler had stated last fall that 
he would obtain from the Gents Club. after 
the first of the year $200.00 to help pay 
for the uniforms of the cheerleaders if the 
Senate would pick up the difference. The 
bill would be approximately $275.00. .Al- 
though the Senate had already stated that it 
would not appropriate funds for uniforms. Some 
Council members felt that the Senate would 
probably reconsider and vote the seventy - 
five dollars. As of this week, the cheer- 
leaders reported that the bill is just over 
$300.00 for the sweaters, and that Sigler 
will only pay $150.00. The Senate, after 
rediscussion, reaffirmed its original stand 
and voted not to fund the cheerleaders . 
It also reminded the cheerleaders that 
they were subject only to the Athletic 
Department and that this came about .at the 
joint request of the Athletic Department 
and last year's cheerleaders .

The Theatre/Speech department is spon- 
soring sessions in modem jazz dance and 
movement with Lea Darwin this semester. 
Classes will be held on Monday and Wednesday 
at 3:00 in Haynes Gym . The semester cost will 
be $25 for both lessons each week or $15 for 
one lesson per week. Lea is a very accom- 
plished dancer and I encourage you to register. 
You may do so by calling Mr. Robert Buseick, 
869-5242, Theatre/Speech department. 

I want to encourage you all to come to 
the All -Star Campus Revue this weekend. Joe 
Allain, chief instigator of the affair, has 
tapped the vast amount of talent that thrives 
among the Rivertown Players to head the bill. 
Such show stoppers as the Electric Fudge and 
Vaseline Barber Shop Quartet and Wrestling 
Team, as well as the Group Gropers, have been 
booked. 

Speaking of the Rivertown Players the 
director of Serpent , Tom Wilkerson, has released ?? d l ree f of .^f 1 " ho ™ es l 
this statement concerning the upcoming produc- the Blrchers hiding there, 
tion at Majorie Lyons Playhouse, "I have eigh- 
teen actors of varied temperament and talent, 
an accomploshed choreographer and three, shall 
I say, brilliant musicians, all of whose abil- 
ities combined, should make Serpent one of the 
most exciting, personally rewarding and simul- 
taneously maddening pieces of theatre ever 
produced by the Playhouse." 

There'll be a Rivertown Players meet- 
ing Feb. 23, 6:30 p. m. , at the Playhouse. 



A BIRCHER UNDER EVERY BED 

Comment by Jeff Daiell 

It was a highly enlightening Interim for 
the students of Political Extremism in the 
Far Right. Taught by Mr. W. P. Garvin, the 
class (22 at the outset) covered the his- 
tory of "right-wing" extremist movements 
from 1970 to the present. I have put quotes 
around "right-wing" because the text, which 
I consider to have frequently verged on 
hysterical paranoia, stated at the begin- 
ning that the usual ecopolitical standard 
of state -power versus individual freedom 
was to be "tossed out, and a social -poli- 
tical standard of preservatism vs . change 
was to be instilled. Thus, Barry' Gold- 
water would be classed an ultra-Rightist 
and Ayn Rand, who endorsed the Senator 
in 1964, would be classed an ultra-leftist' 

Movements covered were the Anti-Maso- 
nic Party, the American Protective Asso- 
ciation, the Han, Huey P. Long and his 
Share- the -Wealth, Father Coughlin, and 
the Birch Society, among others. 

No final was given, but papers on one 
of several groups considered "right-wing" 
(including, you understand, the National 
Socialist Party) were assigned to each 
student. 

While it seemed that neither the Left- 
ists nor Rightists in the group were chan- 
ging their minds , it is probable that 
many students were now aware enough of the 
"right-wing" threat to check the rocks 
and trees of their homes to uncover all

This Sunday, February 20, Robert Hall- 
quist, Jr. will present his junior recital at 
3:00 p.m. in the Hurley Recital Hall. Robert, 
a native of Shreveport, has played three 
times with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra. 
In 1967 he was the winner of the Ralph Squires 
Memorial and was a finalist in the 1970 Shreve- 
port Symphony Auditions . 

A student of Nina Plant Wideman, Hall- 
quist will play again with the Shreveport 
Symphony in April during the Holiday in Dixie 
festival. Hallquist has been a Centenary Col- 
lege Choir accompanist for the past three 
years . 

The program will include a Bach prelude 
and fugue, Chopin's Ballads, and Beethoven's 
fourth piano concerto on his program. 

Anyone interested in singing with the 
Centenary Opera Company should contact Mary 
Beth Armes. She needs chorus singers, espec- 
ially male vocalists for the upcoming opera, 
"The Magic Flute." Auditions for "Flute" 
will be held Tuesday, February 22, in the Hur- 
ley Auditorium at 10:30 a.m. Rehersals will 
be on Tuesdays, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. , and 
on Thursdays, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Now is 
the chance for all great shower -singers to 
step forth and be recognized. 

Upcoming events include a piano recital 
by Dr. Don Rupert on Sunday, February 27, and 
a band concert on March 1 . 

NATURE PROPOSALS 

The proposals for the development of the 
Walter Jacobs Park north of Cross Lake as a 
nature center are on deposit at the Centenary 
Library. These proposals were drawn up by 
the National Audubon Society last December 
at the request of the Caddo Parish Police 
Jury. The Bayou Chapter of the Ozark Society 
has endorsed the Audubon Society plans which 
promise to provide a new and unique nature 
study center for the Shreveport area. The 
proposals may be examined at the Library 
Circulation Desk. '

From Feb. 24 to April 20 Centenary will 
again hold a business seminar, consisting of 
eight sessions, on 'The Fundamentals of 
Supervision" to be held on Thursday evenings 
in the cafeteria. Centenary's Center for 
Management Development, directed by Dr John 
Berton, is sponsoring the program, which is 
made possible through a special fund set 
by the Frost Foundation of Shreveport. 
Instructors for the program will be Dr 
Roger W. Best, associate professor and Head 
of the Department of Business Administration 
at Northwestern State University, and Dr 
John Hix, assistant professor of Business 
Administration at Northwestern. The pur- 
pose of the program is to aid company su- 
pervisors in getting their work done more 
effectively through people.

Welkf Lombardo 
Set Dates 

"Heavy" music fans will have their calen- 
dars filled in early March, when popular 
bandleaders Lawrence Welk and Guy Lombardo 
bring their music-makers to Shreveport The 
controversial Welk, who plays what has come 
to be called Champagne Music (a fore-runner 
of acid rock), will appear at Hirsch Memori- 
al Coliseum on March 4 at 7:30 p. m. 

Superstar Guy Lombardo, often associated 
with rowdy New Year's Eve celebrations, where 
alcohol and other drugs are rumored to be con- 
sumed, is scheduled, to bring his avant- 
garde Royal Canadians to the Civic Theater 
on March 8. 

Because Shreveport police have been 
informed of the engagements, attendees are 
warned to stay clean, and to stash "hip- 
flasks," "bubble machines," and other drug 
paraphernalia at home. 

Teacher Exams in April 

National Teacher Examinations will be 
administered on April 8, 1972, at Centenary. 

According to Dr. Dorothy Gwin, college 
seniors preparing to teach and teachers ap- 
pl.-ing for positions in school systems which 
encourage or require the NTE are eligible to 
take the tests. In addition, the designation 
of Centenary as a test center for these exam- 
inations will give prospective teachers in 
this area an opportunity to compare their per- 
formance on the examinations with candidates 
throughout the country who take the tests, Dr. 
Gwin said. 

Last year approximately 116,000 candidates 
took the examinations nationwide. These tests 
are designed to assess cognitive knowledge 
and understanding in professional education, 
general education and subject -field special- 
ization. The examinations, which are prepared 
and administered by Educational Testing Service 
of Princeton, New Jersey, are limited to as-, 
sessment of those aspects of teacher education 
that are validly and reliably measured by 
well constructed paper-and-pencil tests. 



Poetry Competition 



The National Poetry Press announces its 
spring competition. The closing date for 
the submission of manuscripts by college stu- 
dents is April 10. Any student attending 
either junior or senior college is eli- 
gible to submit his verse. There is no 
limitation as to form or theme. Shorter 



works are preferred by the Board of Jud- 
ges, because of space limitations. 

Each poem must be typed or printed on 
a separate sheet, and must bear the name and 
home address of the student, and the college 
address as well. Manuscripts should be sent 
to the office of the press, National Poetry

THE CONGLOMERATE 



politics; 72 

STUDENTS PROVE NIXON RIGHT 

A significant election in this year of 
elections took place last weekend among the 
trustees of Princeton University. They vo- 
ted to restore ROTC to the Princeton campus. 
"Restore" is the word though it is inexact. 
On paper, Princeton has had an ROTC unit 
throughout the Vietnamese conflict, but the 
armory has been padlocked, the equipment re- 
moved and the notion that Princeton might 
provide an officer of the Army of the United 
States was a subject to be mentioned in whis- 
pers. 

Princeton administrators had asked the 
Army to lay low, but not to get out. The 
contract with ROTC was in its final year, and 
there was some chance of a turnaround in stu- 
dent and faculty opinion. Apparently, the 
trustees now believe that the turnaround has 
come. Before the trustee vote, Princeton's 
faculty, by a narrow margin, also voted in 
favor of ROTC. 

Thus an issue which became the excuse- for 
burning buildings, carrying deans and presi- 
dents out of offices and dropping bombs into 
restrooms is laid to rest at last. So is the 
ready excuse for summoning thousands of mod- 
erates to demonstrate at the behest of a 
radical few. 

ROTC is still dead at Dartmouth, Harvard, 
Columbia, Yale, Stanford, Brown, Colgate and 
a few other campuses. But with Princeton in 
the lead, it seems possible that restoration 
at the others will take place. The war lives, 
but the revolt against the war is dead. 

Two things need to be said about the pass- 
ing of this era and the first is that the ROTC 
issue was inherently a bad one. Unless stu- 
dents who opposed the war could abolish the 
Army itself, of what good was it to deprive 
that Army of leadership by the most qualified 
young men in the country? 

To civilians in charge of the armed ser- 
vices, one of the saddest aspects of the Cal- 
ley case was the nagging question of how this 
misfit ever became an officer in the Army of 
th^ United States. They could not help the 
reflectinn that My Lai might not have happen 
ed had Calley's peers not been permitted to 
avoid the years of service which he perform- 
ed. For that conscience-striking thought, 
the ouster of ROTC from the campuses became 
a symbol . 

For dissident students, it was also a sym- 
bol and the only one they could grab. How 
else could they make their protest known 
to a faraway government, sham as the symbol 
might be? 

Faculty opponents of the war argued that 
ROTC courses should not receive credit. ROTC 
changed the courses so that they were as rig- 
orous and academic as any in the curriculum. 
Faculty argued that ROTC officers should not 
receive faculty standing, ROTC agreed. Fac- 
ulty argued that ROTC drill should not be 
held on campus. ROTC agreed to hold drill 
campus. There was nothing left to argue 



about, so faculty led students to storm the 
building. 

The second thing that needs to be said is 
that Mr. Nixon is proving to be right and his 
opponents wrong in their respective estimates 
of the student revolt. The President always 
thought it would peter out if the draft were 
cut and the casualties reduced. 

His opponents thought it represented the 
new morality. As recently as a few months 
ago, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts 
was asking almost plaintively why students 
didn't seem to care any more, although, as 
he pointed out, it was only the color of 
the skin on the bodies which had changed in 
Vietnam. 

The Princeton decision proves that the 
revolt on the campus was not as idealistic 
as many of us thought it was. Having told 
us how bad the war was , the new generation 
is now telling us that it can tolerate it 
if it doesn't have to fight it.

Vote Pattern 

By Jeff Gordon/AFS 

A highly significant change in the politi- 
cal balance of power can occur in your com- 
munity and state as a result of a vigor- 
ous voter registration drive calculated 
to take advantage of the new 18-20-year- 
old vote. This has already occurred in 
California, where a startling change has 
taken place in the composition of the 
California electorate. Almost silently, 
while political pundits have been deba- 
ting whether or not the 18-year old vote 
will have any effect, hundreds of thou- 
sands of young people have been added to 
the California voting rolls in 1971. 

Between Jan. 1, 1971, and Jan. 1, 
1972, 1,320,000 new voters were added to 
the California rolls, an increase of 19.7 
percent, more than double the largest 
single off-year (odd-numbered year) in- 
crease in the decade of the 1960 's. This 
figure is based on the official voter regis- 
tration statistics of county clerks of 
counties which comprise 81.6 percent of 
California's total population. 

A thirteen county survey completed the 
first week of Jan., 1972, indicates that 
331,000 18 to 20 year olds have already 
registered to vote in California (51 
percent of the total population in ' 
age group) . There is strong evidence that 
an additional 400,000 new voters between 
the ages of 21 and 25 have also been regis- 
tered. 

The statewide party breakdown of the 331, 
000 newly resisted 18 to 20 year old voters 
is: Democratic: 59.5 percent, Republican: 
21.0 percent, "decline to state": 13.8 
percent and 4.0 percent, Peace and Freedom. 
The Darty affiliation of the 989,000 
"over-21" voters registered in 1971 is: 
Democratic 57.9 percent, Republican 29.7 
percent, "decline to state" 9.5 percent, 
Peace and Freedom 1.3 percent.

been elected by the students and placed in 
the yearbook. These two were to be out- 
standing seniors, and I feel that such recog- 
nition by one's peers is a true honor. I 
have no complaints with the end results. 
My beef comes from the following facts: 

The SGA elections committee said one 
year ago that it could run the Centenary Lady 
and Gent election better than the Yoncopin. 
The Yoncopin said 'O. K." I was present 
at this exchange. 

According to Election Committee rules, 
all elections are to be announced one month * 
in advance, and the poll is to be watched , 
at all times. 

Since both of these points were not 
followed, it would seem to me that the elec- 
tions can be contested. 

the reason the elction was not 
announced on time is the joint fault of 
the licet ions Committee and the Yoncopin. 
It falls on the Elections Committe because 
they did not find out when the Yonc 

pictures in. Fart of the blame 
is on the Yoncopin they didn't 

take the initiative to remind the I 
Committee. I think the goof si 
.n the c 
rther noi 
ough I d 

lotr- 



tells me that not only was the box stuffed 
in favor of certain people, but that ballots 
bearing certain other names were removed. 

Now, as far as the Senate is concered, 
the elction can be contested as stated above. 
As far as the Yoncopin is concerned, they 
can accept the Yoncopin- run election, use 
the results, and tell the Senate to go jump 
etc. The Senate has no power over the Yon- 
copin. So ... . 

The final blow was the way several of 
the Senators just wanted to ignore their 
own rules, and the attendant extralegal ities. 
and maintain their attitude of trying 
to blame the goof on someone else. 

For what they're worth, here are a 
few more unsolicited thoughts from me: 

Those students who give an honest 
damn about the quality of life on campus are 
hindered by inertia of unvoting/ uncaring 
students and the resultant inertia of the 
svstem. I an in full favor of a benevolent 
oligarchy of about five people elected by 
the students to run their collective life 
and of dropping the pretext of a democratic 
:em.

Yoncopin 
Deadline Near 

The Yoncopin, Centenary's annual word 
and picture memory book, is receiving some 
of those frantic last minute touches as the ' 
Monday copy deadline draws near. After Mon- 
day, the pages of 1971-72 will be sent to 
Taylor Publishing Company in Dallas, Tex. 
for processing and binding. Editor Susan 
Bell says that this year's book is on time 
and will be approximately the same size as 
last year's edition. The yearbook will be 
distributed on campus at some time before 
school is out for the summer. 

The services of Lawrence Lea, a Shreve- 
port photographer, have been contracted to

Environment Last 
on U. S. Budget 

Washington, D. C- -Priority given to the 
environment in the President's 1973 fiscal 
budget request has been labeled "peanuts" 
by the National Wildlife Federation. 

In Feb. 3 testimony before the Subcom- 
mittee on Fisheries and Wildlife, Senate 
Committee on Appropriations, NWF Executive 
Director Thomas Kimball said that the new 
budget looks like "a patchwork cf programs 
put together in response to pressures." 
He added that despite obvious national 
environmental needs, it seems that the 
"groups with the greatest political clout 
get the most attention when funding time 
rolls around, especially in an election 
year." 

The new budget request , released 'on 
Jan. 24, 1972, lists 14 functional cate- 
gories for funding purposes. "Natural Re- 
sources and the Environment" is listed at 
the very bottom. The budget listed $5.5 
billion for a space shuttle program and, 
as in other years, the national defense 
budget is higest at $78.3 billion. Al- 
though the total budget proposal rose from 
the previous year, funds requested. for the 
Environmental Protection Agency remained 
essentially the same, at less than $2.5 
billion. The total proportionate share al- 
loted to the environment, however, dropped 
to about one percent in 1973. 

Kimball also charged that what environ- 
mental funds have been appropriated by the 
Congress and signed into law have not been 
properly spent by the Office of Management 
and Budget.

Ghost Writers on the Co 



Making it in the 
Multiversity 



By Steve Hart/AFS 

Berkely, Ca.--"Why do I do it? Be- 
cause it makes me feel smart," says Al 
Berg. "I like it when people come around 
telling me how smart I am." 

Al Berg (not his real name) is a ghost 
writer. He's one of about 25 people in this 
area who will, for a price, research and 
write almost any assignment- -from a student's 
term paper to an entire doctoral thesis. 

"Sure, I can write on any subject, ex- 
cept maybe biological statistics," says 
Berg, leaning back in the wicker chair and 
tugging at his thick black moustache. "A 
guy asked me to do a PHD paper for him on 
"Nationalism and Technology in Tanganyika." 
He'd worked on it a year and a half, and 
gotten nowhere. I whipped it out in four 
days --it came to seventy pages." 

"I wrote the story of a guy's life 
once, for his Family Living class. I took 
it from an old casebook study I'd seen as a 
social worker, where the kid was diagnosed 
as a potential assassin." 

Berg's "office" is a ram-shackle wood- 
frame house near the Berkeley campus of the 
university of California, and it's from here 
that he deals with his clients, mostly stu- 
dents at Cal. Some of them are completely 
'ependent on Berg's services. "There's one 
guy who can't write even so much as a three- 
page paper," Berg said. "He only takes a 
few units each quarter, so he can afford 
me." 

"Students like personal contact- -one 



Another Berkeley ghost writer adver- 
tises "professional" editing and rewriting 
in the daily californian's classified sec- 
tion. Would she write a term paper for 
pay? 

"No, it's dishonest. A teacher assumes 
it's your work when it isn't. Sure, the sys- 
tem may be unethical, but two wrongs don't 
make a right." Yet her own work consists 
of researching and writing manuscripts for 
professors and professional people, for use 
in academic and trade journals. She also 
ghost writes novels , and writes under her 
own name. 

Though Berg's operation is a small, one- 
man business, ghost writing is a big busi- 
ness for a group of national term paper en- 
trepreneurs . Four Boston area term paper 
outfits , International Termpapers , Incor- 
porated, Universal Termpapers, Termpapers 
Unlimited, and Quality Bullshit, were re- 
ported to have turned out 4,000 papers in 
the first six months of the 1970-1971 
school year. 

Most of their cusomers were from Har- 
vard and Yale. Since then, Termpapers Un- 
limited and Quality Bullshit have opened 
outlets in the San Francisco Bay area. 
TPU's western affiliate, Termpaper Libera- 
tion, offers "thousands of papers avai- 
lable," from a pool shared with TPU Bos- 
ton. These services sell countless dupli- 
cates of standard-subject termpapers, as 
well as custom papers turned out by a stable 
of their own writers.

Other theme brokers operate out of such 
unlikely places as Indio, California and 
Rockford, Illinois. They'll be glad to send 
you their "free list of titles." 

The ghost writing racket works both 
ways: term paper businesses are in the mar- 
ket for good papers written by students . 
Termpaper, Inc., of Stanford advertises, "We 
buy your essays, themes, theses, term papers, 
dissertations." At a rate of $2.75' per 5 
pages, Termpaper, Inc.' offer isn't all that 
generous; they resell the papers at $2.00 
a page. A midwestem outfit offers to buy 
student papers at a similar rate, but only 
if the papers have been graded 'A. * 

Term paper services are not always wel- 
come in campus communities, even by the 
students. They resent having to slave over 
term papers, when some rich student can 
have the work done by somebody else. 

Smaller colleges are no market for a 
ghost writing service, according to Berg. 
"I placed an ad in the papers at Cal State 
Hayward and SF State, but I only got one 
call. I guess students there don't have 
the pressure to succeed that they have at 
the (big) university." 

Whether ghost writing is ethical or 
not, it's the student, not the ghost wri- 
ter, who suffers if the ruse is found out. 
Punishment may range from an 'F' on the pa- 
per or the course to probation or even dis- 
missal from the college or university. Still, 
it's hard to prove plagiarism, unless the 
professor receives two identical papers, and 
the term paper serves are careful not to 
flood a single campus with too many dupli- 
cates . 

The term paper services themselves are 
not absolutely secure either, although the 
state failed to get an injunction in a court 
case filed against a ghost-writing business 
in Boston, and the legal counsel for Cali- 
fornia's state colleges just announced he 
would seek an injunction against the term- 
paper industry. 

Despite legal attempts to close them 
down, however, it looks like the ghost wri- 
ters may be here to stay. Term paper out- 
fits see a need for their services, and are 
not about to let the need go unmet. "I 
think we should only be used by students in 
desperate circumstances," said Barry Jones 
of Berkeley's "Know- It -All ' term paper ser- 
vice He expects a flood of business as the 
school year wears on. 



Firm Accused of 
Selling Term Papers 



NEW YORK --The state has started 

court action to close a firm accused of 
selling term papers, essays and theses to 
nearly 1,000 college students. 

The suit, filed Thursday, charged 
Kathleen Saksniit and Termpapers, Inc., 
which she heads, had violated a state 
law that seeks to "maintain and preserve 
the integrity of the educational process." 

Miss Saksniit was ordered to show cause 
on Feb. 24 why her company should not be 
barred from transacting business . 

Asst. Atty. Gen. Stephen Mindell said 
at least 965 students from more than 100 
college and universities have spent ap- 
proximately $35,416 between Nov. 1 and Jan. 
31 for manuscripts prepared by the firm. 



guy always procrastinates, and comes over 
here the night before his paper is due. 
He's desperate for help, and I usually get 
it to him." 

Al charges around three dollars a page 
for written work, a rate which is average 
for "custom" ghost writing in the area. 
At least four term paper services are listed 
in the classified section of the daily cali- 
fornian, UC Berkeley's student newspaper. 

Berg, in his early thirties, makes enough 
to support a wife and two children. "I may 
have to pay taxes this year," he remarked. 

Does he feel his work is unethical? 
"The whole educational process is unethical. • 
If it wasn't, students woudn't have to come 
to me in the first place. They'd write 
their own papers, if they thought they'd 
be learing something. But the competition 
is so bad, thev can't learn at all." 



Theme Service May Result in Expulsion 



ANN ARBOR, Mich. (CPS)--Two University 
of Michigan students are facing explusion 
for using a commercial term paper writing 
service. 

The service sold both students identi- 
cal papers, who, unknowingly, turned them 
in to the same English professor. 

The company told each student that he 
received an original term paper which would 
be the only one at the university. 

In addition, in May of this year, two 
Harvard students were found to have used 
this service. On was expelled and the other 
suspended for one year. 

University of Michigan English Depart- 
ment Chairman Charles Hagelman said a stu- 



dent using this type of service may face 
university explusion. "Only the student 
stands to lose by using this service " 
Hagelman said. 

Sanford Dean, Psychology Department 
chairman at the school, said if the stu- 
dents can buy term papers, 'Why don't we 
sell them course credits or degrees?"

There was an instant outcry from 
several competing cable TV companies when 
the franchise was awarded, which claimed 
that the whole thing had been conducted 
improperly, not to mention the infirmities 
in the ordinance itself. An attorney for 
one of the unsuccessful companies, Ark- 
La-Tex Cable Co., announced that steps would 
be taken to force the City Council to handle 
the franchise differently, including legal 
action should it be necessary. One of the 
major points of contention was the claim 
that cable TV is a public utility, and that 
a public vote is required to allow the use 
of city streets and alleys for the cables. 
The Dec. 28 meeting ended on a rather con- 
fused note, with the only firm action being 
the scheduling of a second reading of the 
ordinance for Jan. 11, and as it turned 
out, even this did not come off as the Coun- 
cil had planned. 

Another of competing companies, the 
Caddo-Bossier Cablevision, asked for a de- 
lay of the second reading until some of 
the controversy could be cleared up. 
There was also the point of the relative in- 
experience of Public Finance Commissioner 
George Burton, who only took office in Dec, 
and his knowledge of the background infor- 
mation of the competing companies. Caddo- 
Bossier Cablevision president John L. 
Schober pointed out that there was a "volu- 
minous" amount of applications and suppor- 
ting documents to study and Burton, in the 
short time that he had been in office, 
could not have possibly covered it sufficent- 
V t,! at m informed decision as to 

where the franchise should go. Also, de- 
J Schober, the public had not been 

he relative merits of the dif- 
i rms ; indeed, many people were un- 
aware of who the competing firms were be- 
fore the franchise was awarded to the 
Tulsa comp chober said that he had 

n?ceiwJ no answer when he asked sev 
°f the commissioners why the franchise 

warded to LVD instead of the local 
firms. 

The re r a delay was granted 

on Jan. n. md a public hearing

was Georv usually 

aed with the investor ible 

'nc. , who proposed the public hearing 
there! rdizing the char

wotioi; 

|en, and passed. The Mayor pointed out that 
*t was normal for public hearings to be held 
on franchise operations of this type, the 
taxicab franchise serving as an example. 

Schober then levied another charge 
gainst the city, this one being that there 
"ad never been any competitive bids ■• 
regard to the subscription charge 
ted to the Council. The ordinance stated 
that the amounts of these ch aid not 

exceed Slv.95 for the installation and $" 
f°r the monthly charge, but did not specifi- 




cally prohibit any lower amounts being 

™? ge ?~ J " owever . Schobe r claimed, when he 
contacted Commissioner Collins and Cecil 
Warren, an administrative aide to Collins 
and the author of the ordinance, and asked 
about charging less than the stated amount 
he was told that it was not permitted. 
Caddo-Bossier Cablevision had submitted one 
bid in 1970 which called for a $4.60 in- 
stallation charge and a $4.60 monthly 
subscription payment; since the ordinance 
passed in Dec. of 1971 contained much more 
stringent requirements, he did not think that 
his company could provide the service for an 
amount that low, but that there was a very 
good chance that it could be done for less 
than $19.95 and $5.25. D'Artois said that 
it was for this reason that he had not voted 
for the ordinance in the first place. 

Meanwhile, Ark-La-Tex Cable Co! filed 
suit to have the ordinance declared void, 
which was turned down in court. The judge 
pointed out that a more applicable course 
of action would have been for the suit 
to have been filed in the form of an injunc- 
tion to stop further action of the ordinance. 

When the Jan. 25 meeting did come about , 
it was a very heated affair. Again final 
action was not taken, this time on a motion 
which pased by a 3-2 margin, with Collins 
and Public Works Commissioner Don Hathaway 
casting the dissenting votes. D'Artois 
moved that the ordinance be amended to call 
for sealed competitive bids as Schober had 
suggested. This brought on a storm of pro- 
test from Collins, who said that an or. 
nance could not be amended between the first 
and second reading. D'Artois replied that 
it had been done many times in the past, and 
his claim won the support of the city attor- 
ney John Gallagher. Hathaway rallied to the 
support of Collins, saying that he thought 
the franchise should go to LVO as is. 

The exchange between the Councilmen pales 
to insignificance however when the arguments 
which broke out between the representatives 
of the companies is considered. LVO presented 
an eloborate program which described the ser- 
vice offered as "the most extensive and so- 
phisticated system of those submitted." Jo- 
seph L. Hargrove of Ark-La-Tex Cable Co. coun- 
tered that the same system was being offer. 

11 the companies, and that claims oi 
technical superior^ misleading. 

Hargrove and representatives of several of 
the other firms made reference to the perfor- 
mance of vlcr, Texas, which the. 
scribed as "atrociou 

Hargrove, in another a1 .lsa 

group, pointed out that the local representa- 
tives of LVO were all from the upper soi 
and economic level of the community, a group 
that has never been famous for I on- 

to the needs of the lower classes, while 
La-Tex Cable come from 
the communis 
<o promised to sell stock to lo 

Lving them some voice in 
the ope' m. 

Caddo-Bossier Cablevision represcT 
-chober and vice-president Douglas 
trick took the floor next, first accusing 

tking extravagant and insupportable 
promises concerning their servia had 

that it would spend between $6 
and $8 million on the local system. The firm 

■d, had spent a total of on; 
million on it's entire cable television opera- 
tions during the past year. The parent 
it should be noted, is not in cable TV alor 
rather it's main business is oil, and ca 
only one of the many enterprises v 
it dabbles in. 

In addition to his attacks on the claims 
), Dittnck opened up on Cecil Warren, 
author of the disputed ordinance, accusing him 



HEBE ? 

of being a "self -appointed cable television 
expert',' and complaining that Collins and i. 
ren had seemingly drafted the document aft 
having seen the LVO proposal, and had tailored 
it to (it LVO's situation. 

The Shreveport chapter of the ACLU got 
into the act at about this time, submitting 
to the City Council a list of ci>;ht provisions 
which it wanted included in the ordinance. 
The provisions, which the Mayoi Lth 

the promise that they would be considered, 
led for the establishment of a seven mend 
cable television commission to G ilATV 

operation, set standards, prescribe the num- 
ber of years for which a franchise would In- 
awarded, and have authority to renew oi 
voke the franchise it tli.it became necessary. 

The ACLU also wanted to prohibit anyone 
holding either an appointed or an elected 
government position from participat m>; in I 
franchise, as well as any group or person who 
is engaged in newspapers, broadcasting, or 
sales and service. In addition, the group 
requested provisions guaranteeing I or 

more channels would be set aside for ai 
group or individual wishing 
on television, and guaranteeing service to

For My Ship," and other people's songs. 
For instance, there's Alice Stuart's 
classic, "Full Time Woman" (which she didn't 
do such a hot job on herself) , Bessie 
Smith's "Young Woman's Blues" (they make not 
the slightest attempt to outdo the Queen) , 
and the astonishing "Customs (Is It All 
Over)" by Bob Neuwirth, who used to be Bob 
Dylan's road manager. 

Grootna's musicianship is impeccable, 
and the band's interaction is a joy to hear- 
no star trips at all, just a bunch of people 
who really understand each other. The whole 
affair is produced by Marty Balin, late of 
Jefferson Airplane, and if this is a good 
example of where he's at these days, it 
was a good idea he bailed out when he did. 
Yeah, Grootna will make you dance and sing. 
When was the last time James Taylor made you 
do that? -- Ed Ward/AFS 



YOUNGBLOODS 

Speaking of California good time bands, 
the Youngbloods sit up there in their seclu- 
ded Point Reyes Station and continue to 
bring out record after record. Some of them 
are good, some horrible, but they don't 
seem to mind, and just keep rollin'. 

Their latest offering is entitled 
Good And Dusty (Raccoon #9, Warner Brothers 
BS 2566) and is certainly not what you'd 
expect. After all this while, who'd look 
to the Youngbloods to record, "That's How 
Strong My Love Is," or 'Willie and The 
Hand Jive"? And even if that's what you 
were expecting, I betcha you never thought 
they'd sound like this. It's still the 
Youngbloods, and they are still as relaxed 
as ever, which makes for some strange con- 
trasts with the music. 

The whole reason for "Willie," for in- 
stance, is the Bo Diddley rhythm: CHUNK 
a chunka chunka chunka-chunk CHUNK. Well, 
the Youngblood's version starts out like 
that, but returns to the gently rolling 
beat that marks the whole album. One of 
the problems with doing things like this is 
that everything can start sounding the same 
after awhile, but fortunately the Youngbloods 
are musically good enough to get away with 
it. 

It's a good album for late-night relaxing 
and such, but don't expect miracles or reve- 
lations from it. But if you're a Youngbloods 
freak, you'll love it, and if you've ever 
felt kindly towards them, you might check 
it out. -- E. W.

THE COPERNICUS OF ASTROLOGY 

Astrology is in trouble. Too many objec- 
tive tests of its predictive power have shown 
it to be little better than guesswork, but 
a new astrology is in the making, just as 
surely as a new astronomy was forced by 
Copernicus in the overthrow of Ptolemy's 
universe . 

Ptolemy's earth -centered astronomy was 
preempted by Copernicus in the 16th century, 
but his astrology is today's astrology almost 
to the letter. So it turns out that the 
signs of the zodiac don't refer to the stars 
as they are today but as they were in Pto- 
lemy's day. This doesn't bother astrologers

Jeff Beck is one of yer British Sooper- 
stars trying to make a comeback. For star- 
ters , he formed a band and went into the Mo- 
town studios to make use of their famous 
rhythm section. The story has it that 
the bassist (the one. responsible for all 
the cosmic Motown bass lines) went run 7 "" 
ning into the street with his hands over 
his ears, screaming "I won't play this trash'" 
Undaunted, Jeff returned to the U. K., where 
when things began to jell again, he had a 
k that laid him up for a while. 
Now, he's finally managed to recover, 
find a ba.d, keep it together long enough 
to record, and come up with Rough and 
Ready (Epic KE 30973). 

t's not much, but hard-core Jeff Beck 
might go for it. The tunes meander

Sex-Info Distributed 
in Seattle 

The following report is 
reprinted from a United Press International 
Story 

Seattle, Wash. --The University of 
Washington Women's Commission will continue 
to distribute a controversial pamphlet 
bluntly entitled "How to Have Intercourse 
Without Getting Screwed," which deals with 
birth control, venereal disease and abortion. 

Its publication already has led to the 
resignation of a student health center phy- 
sician. 

The Commission had about 7,000 copies 
of the booklet printed from student funds 
and has started to distribute them. 

Dr. Lloyd P. Johnson said in resigning 
from the Center that the pamphlet was "A 
rather crass, mechanistic approach to fami- 
planning" and objected to its being dedi- 
cated to a local abortionist.. 

Ann Johnson, of the Women's Commission, 
said the booklet was a response to a campus 
need and not a promotion of premarital sex. 

J. Thomas Grays ton, Vice President 
of University Health Affairs, said the 
booklet was 'Veil written, scientif 
sound and useful for sex education." 



much though- -they don't really look at the 
sky but at tables based on Jhe fact that 
in Ptolemy's day, the spring equinox oc- 
curred when the sun appeared in the constel- 
lation Aries. 

If you are born at this time of the year 
now, astrologers will call you an Aries, al- 
though the sun is really at the far end nf 
Pisces. (Astrologers say they make a dis- 
tinction between signs and the constella- 
tions they are named for, but this is a com- 
paratively recent wrinkle reminiscent of the 
cycles and epicycles once contrived to save 
appearances in medieval astronomy.) 

The tendency of astrologers to ignore the 
sky is paralleled by their tendency to ig- 
nore facts. For instance, fourteen profes- 
sional astrologers given birth information 
about three famous people were unable to 
match the information with the people on 
more than a random level . They were still 
practicing astrology in the old way. 

A Copernicus of astrology must ask, 
"What, in fact, are the correlations (if 
any) between events in the sky and events 
on earth?" And if anyone is such a Coper- 
nicus, he is the French psychologist and 
statistician, Michel Gauquelin, who set 
out in the 40 's to see if there were any 
statistical correlations between the posi- 
tions of the planets in people's birth 
charts and the traditional astrological 
predictions about these charts . 

Others before him had found such correla- 
tions, but he found their statistical methods 
unsound and their samples far too small to 
be significant. He painstakingly worked out 
charts for 25,000 Europeans, and showed 
that astrological predictions were little 
better than chance. 

But in the process Gauquelin saw that a 
very significant pattern had indeed emerged 
(unpredicted by astrology) . Certain planets 
rising or at the zenith time of a person's 
birth seemed to correlate strongly with cer- 
tain occupations --mars with doctors, scien- 
tists, athletes, soldiers, and executives; 
Saturn with doctors and scientists, jupiter 
with team athletes, soldiers, ministers, 
actors, journalists, and playwrights; the 
moon with ministers, politicians and wri- 
ters. Why these correlations occur is of 
course a mystery, but notice that there is 
nothing in them about the signs of the 
zodiac. Gauquelin 's work is concerned with 
the positions of the planets relative to 
each other within the solar system. 

This new astrology has become a precise 
predictive tool in the hands of Czechoslovak 
kian Eugene Jonas. After years of struggle 
against the prejudgment of scientific col- 
leagues, he has established a method of as- 
trologi'cal birth control, whereby the posi- 
tions of the sun and moon relative to each 
other at the time of a woman's birth corre- 
lates with her fertility cycle. (She is 
fertile on far fewer days than is indicated 
by the rhythm method. 

The Czechs are serious about this . The 
Ministry of Health has an Astra Research 
Center for Planned Parenthood. They claim 
98 percent effectiveness in astrological 
contraception and similar results in pre- 
determining the sex of the child, avoiding 
miscarriages, birth defects, and overcoming 
sterility. They are, of course, trying to 
figure out how it all works. The answer 
may tell us more about the future of the 
new astrology, which now lies like a huge 
unexplored ocean.

Gents Revenge N.O. Defeats, 
Privateers Downed in Squeaker 



The Centenary Gents inched 
their record closer and closer to 
the .500 level over the weekend 
with revenge victories over Loyola 
Saturday and LSUNO Monday. Larry 
Davis scored 61 points and grabbed 
20 rebounds to lead the Gents 
to the victories which raised 
their season record to 10-11. 

Monday night's 85-84 squeak- 
er over LSUNO was the most exci-
